i didn’t take a lot of photos in berlin, so i guess this isn’t an accurate description of what i saw & took in on my trip there. when you travel so much you sometimes get lazy on the photography front, thinking it will be all good & you’ll just remember it all. but you don’t! you should take pics all the time.
in each city ami asks 50 of its inhabitants to hand-draw a map to a place of their choosing, a place that is significant or important to them personally, for any reason. she then uses the maps to navigate to each location and take a photograph to represent each location. the ° books portray a side of each city as interpreted by those who live and work in it every day. its not a “guide” to the new café or club, but rather, a unique way of discovering different parts of the city.
from a trip to italy, 2003. i remember it being reported as the hottest italian summer in decades – that water was heaven.
i do realise that’s two italian summery posts in the space of 2 days – but i’m craving warm weather!
i did a fair bit of travelling in 2007, so i’m going to start sharing some europa pics. first installment will be copenhagen, just because i’m thinking about it today. i did a post about copenhagen’s bicycle culture a while back – and on spring days like this i feel like i should emulate rather than envy.
