Photographs taken in the neighborhoods of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg in East Central, a trendy, bohemian, artsy area of Berlin. Kreuzberg, specifically, is one of the city’s most eclectic districts home to an unusual mix of artists, left-wing punks, anarchists, gays, and Turkish immigrants. The area has gentrified a considerable amount over the past few years and rent prices have risen drastically.

The districts were separated by the wall and the remaining part of the wall dividing the two neighborhoods is the longest still-existing section in Berlin.
