In his series Postcards From Berlin, German street photographer Chris Retro offers us an eclectic series of images, documenting life on the streets of Berlin, uncut, as it happens.
From interesting angles of people walking through Germany’s historic capital to those waiting for the next underground train – Chris explores every corner of the metropolis to show us an unexpected side to one of Europe’s most fascinating cities.
Speaking of his work, Chris said: “Quite often we portray a city in a certain way, but Berlin has a certain transient vibe to it that no other city quite has, and that’s what I intend to portray here, a city so diverse yet portrayed from a slightly different angle.”
Coming from a musical background, having been an international DJ and producer during the infamous clubbing ’90s, Chris’s impressive visual storytelling offers a strong narrative and a unique way of seeing the world. He discovered a passion for photography while walking through the many cities he visited, documenting life on the streets in his own inimitable style.
He captures the various essences depending on time, natural light and geographical situations.
But how would you describe Chris’s style? Candid, different, interesting and certainly eclectic. Discover more at chrisretro.com.
