”Trinkteufel nights” is the name of the project I worked with at the photo workshop I partiscipated in with the photographer Michael Ackerman.
My goal with this project was trying to documenting people i met and the atmosphere in a bar in Berlin.
I spent three nights (and early mornings) at the bar Trinkteufel in Kreutzberg, observing and speaking to people in the bar. Late the first night I met this tough and hard looking man, who looked like a gangster, and everyone was afraid of (me too). We ended up talking, and he told me the story of his life, and about how he had lost almost everything in war and about his struggle to get back on his feet. I went back, and got to know him and the bar even better.
It was a challange for me, trying to get in contact with the people and then photograph them, but I really tried my best and these pictures show some of the people I met at Trinkteufel a warm week in the month of July 2016.
