Black and White Photographs of Berlin From 1978-1998

Gerd Danigel was born in 1959 in East Berlin. In his school days, he found an insatiable passion for painting and drawing. His goal was not the abstract, but the exact representation of what is seen.

When Gerd was about 14, he borrowed from his sister a Penti 2 half frame camera and learned the basic techniques of negative and positive photo processing. From 1979 until today more than 200 cameras went through his hands, he used them to took a lot of photographs of Berlin. Below is a small selection of interesting black and white photographs of Berlin from between 1978 and 1998 taken by Gerd Danigel.
