Pieces of Summer. Berlin Rooftop Easter Party

I have been posting very little over the last few months, mostly because it was summer, and the summer is for us the busiest time in the year: we travel, we shoot, we edit, we shoot, we travel, we edit.  It’s also the time of year where I feel like I have to savour all the time I can possibly get away from the computer, which is usually far too little.

Now as the colder season is before us, I am looking forward to taking my time to go through all those photos again with more time.  I feel a little bit like Frederick, the mouse, from one of my favourite books when I was little: he risked being very unpopular while all the other mice were busy collecting grain and nuts during the summer, as he didn’t participate; in the winter, though, when the mice were slightly bored and sad and had to stay inside, he started telling them stories about what he had collected: sunshine and colours and words…
Although there is no doubt still a lot we have to learn from Frederick, we too have been busy collecting light and colour over the last few months, and I can’t wait to share them as the days grow colder and greyer.

So here’s the first memory: Maria’s rooftop party to celebrate Easter, some time in May. People from all over the world - some Berliners, some new Berliners, some visitors - sharing food they brought, chatting, getting the first tan of the year, and listening to the beautiful Swing tunes of Renard Ce Soir...
