This is Jorn, Odin and Kimberly — they used to live in Kreuzberg’s Graefe-Kiez before they moved to London just some weeks ago. I took this picture just before they started packing.
A short guide for those who love to hunt treasures and dive into piles of worn clothes.
This tiny shop at the end of Görlitzer Straße in Kreuzberg just might be the fulfillment of all your pastry-dreams. “Barcellos Salon Sucré” is a perhaps unlikely combination of pâtisserie and hair salon managed by Eric Muller and his wife Katia Barcello. Visiting them for an interview last week, I entered the shop just after it had opened its doors at 10am. Eric Muller served me a coffee with a croissant au creme d’amandes whose crispy sweetness literally melts in my mouth while I wait for him to get ready. Eric is a talkative man and we often get interrupted by customers, who all seem to have known him for years. The audience is mixed, from heart-warming pensioners who like to enjoy their second breakfast with a hot chocolate and a dainty pastry, French fellows ordering their daily Café au Lait, to American hipster dads carrying babies and grocery shopping bags. All the while, Eric and I talked about how he got to Kreuzberg, why he stayed, and what the secret of his dainty croissants is.
This is Svenja Specht, the renowned creative behind the label Reality Studio in her studio in Friedrichshain. When I started engaging in Berlin fashion, this was one of the first labels I discovered and instantly liked. Svenja lives one floor above her studio with Yoske, who I photographed as the first subject for the At Home series. I met with Svenja on 11/11, the Faschingsanfang (beginning of the carnival season) in Germany, which explains the Pfannkuchen pastry (aka “Berliner” outside of Berlin) on the table.
