I am really excited. Three of my photos made it on the walls of C/O Berlin, one of Europe’s finest photography museums.
C/O Berlin celebrated its final night at the legendary Postfuhramt building. And this is not just any place. C/O Berlin was venue for the Leica May 10 event last year. Everyone expected Leica to launch their new M10 rangefinder camera, but instead Leica surprised the photography world with a new M Monochrom. A camera only for black and white.
But that was then and this is now.
So, C/O Berlin had to move out after 13 years being the city’s favorite photography institution. Not without one final night with celebration. The EyeEm crew had a brilliant idea. They "kicked off a photo mission upon the topic Bye Bye, asked the worldwide EyeEm community to contribute their photos and prepared for the exhibition to be shown to the world on March 9 2013."
It's kind of crazy, when you really think about it: one photo from Paris, one photo from Tokyo and one from Delhi. Uploaded via EyeEm app in Delhi, put up on a wall in my hometown Berlin. How great is that?!
Thanks EyeEm, for this fantastic exhibition. What a great idea and great execution. I wish I could have been there. Bye Bye, C/O Berlin.
