Paul Sullivan selects some of his favourite images of Berlin taken in 2012... I've never photographed as much as I did in 2012. My camera was barely out of my hands for most of the year, even though I probably travelled less (internationally speaking) than any year in the previous decade. I cycled and walked day and night through the centre and fringes of the city, exploring everything from lakes and woodlands to abandoned buildings and residential estates. I never knew quite was I [...]

Paul Sullivan explores Berlin's industrial edgelands en route to the forests and lakes of the Spreewald...
On Saturday 4th August, we hosted the first ever Berlin Slowlympics - and boy was it a lot of fun. We were admittedly anxious about the weather forecasts, half of which promised rain and thunderstorms - but as it turned out we had the opposite "problem": hot, blazing sun almost all day long. Thankfully there were lots of beer tents and shade umbrellas around, though most of the guests and participants seemed content to sprawl out on the sidelines and enjoy the rays (including many Brits who [...]
Just about everyone, resident and visitor alike, enjoys the occasional Sunday visit to the buzzy Mauerpark flohmarkt. One of the highlights, aside from the strolling and browsing, is ex-pat Joe Hatchiban's bearpit karaoke sessions, which he began in 2009 in the Mauerpark's stone amphitheatre. Just recently, the local council attempted to restrict the event by allowing only twelve specific (pre-determined) dates per year and tripling the license fee. But public disappointment and outrage about [...]
