There are eleven officially recognized metropolitan regions in Germany. Thirty-four cities have been identified as regiopolis. All that sounds so big and powerful – most of the time that’s how we imagine this country. Johannes Berger, photographer and editor form Hamburg takes us on sightseeing through German cities showing us their urban side. He plays with reflections and long exposure, capturing vibrant architecture, traffic, and everyday life. Berger calls himself an explorer of the urban spaces and we agree with that tittle. Beside German cities you can see many others too, captured in his distinctive manner. Scroll through our gallery but be sure to follow Berger’s Instagram Page for more cityscape photography, more lively streets, and countries.
Schwerin – “We walked through this alley and looked for a restaurant and this church fits perfect at the end of this little street.”
Cologne – “The first light in Cologne. Throwback to my short trip to Cologne last year. I went to the city center early in the morning for shooting some sunrise moments.”
Hamburg – “Summer is back in the after a few gray cold days.”
Wernigerode – “Curvy streets in Wernigerode. Can you spot the castle?”
Stade – “You found this pearl approximately 30km away from Hamburg. If you have enough time, visit this little town. This photo is from last year during the blue hour. I like all this old lamps in this scenery.”
