Christian von Steffelin >

Christian von Steffelin has lived in Berlin since 1993 and has since documented the tremendous changes that have taken place especially in the former eastern part of the city. He is particularly interested in the temporary states of these developments, which he documents in long-term studies of individual places and urban spaces. In his search for the nature of transience he captures the special atmosphere of these places at a particular point of their existence.
