The Berlin Diary
2 Oct 2010
After nearly 24 years of living abroad, I finally have returned home to my birthplace: Berlin.
But when I first arrived here, I couldn't help it but feeling like a stranger. The feeling of being a stranger has always accompanied me throughout my life, as I have been moving around a lot and never settled anywhere for too long.
As I only have lived here for the first two years of my life, but grew up elsewhere in Germany, I never really felt that I am from one place or another and so the question of 'where are you from' has always been hard to answer for me.
To engage with this city, I started to photograph it. Well, as you can see it's only pictures about the fernsehturm, berlin's biggest landmark. Whenever I've been to Berlin prior to living here, I knew that I had reached my goal when I saw the fernsehturm, so therefore only pictures of this one
The pictures are mainly about how I felt on the day of taking the picture. When I first started this project, I didn't think something would come out of it, but I think I was wrong...
This is not a 'one picutre a day' project but will be frequently updated until I have the feeling that it's time for a new project
