At home: Nhu Duong

Nhu Duong is one of those Berlin people, actually she’s Swedish (and born in Ho Chi Minh City), anyway– I always wanted to get to know her and was more than happy, to finally have the chance. She invited me into her home in Schöneberg, a big Altbau apartment with a weird layout that makes its bourgeois features (very high ceilings, stucco, old ovens and huge windows) actually a little less intimidating and gives it a very homey feel. But that’s not so much why I wanted to meet her…

At Home: Leena Zimmermann

When I first met Leena, I was instantly amazed by her elegant and yet so contemporary style and charisma. I immediately wanted to photograph her – but it took me quite some time to persuade her, since she doesn’t like being pictured. When I visited her in her Mitte apartment, we spend an hour chatting about her job, Berlin, life and fashion, before I took my camera to take this candid shot. And when I send her a selection of pictures, out of all the more “posed” shots we took, she chose this one image, which I initially called an “outtake”, because I thought she might consider it to be too intimate. Needless to say I was more than happy, when she asked me to publish this one.
