Neue Schönhauser Straße: Peter


I’ve been looking for someone like Peter to photograph ever since I started taking street shots, but older gentlemen types aren’t as as easy to find in Berlin as in Milan or Paris, for instance. Peter is 83 years old and lives in Berlin-Köpenick. He’s now retired, but before the war he was trained as a chef at the Adlon Hotel here in Berlin. He told me that his house is filled with clothes, and that he changes his style every day. He also gave me this cute postcard to say thank you for the photo!

    That peach and celeriac soup sounds amazingly creative for a Biergarten. I’m impressed. What was it garnished with? I can’t really tell from the picture and I think that I might recreate that combination at home.

    This is an amazing place, but, as mentioned, it’s really crowded and there are lots of tourists…
