Bikes of Berlin: From Brandenburg Gate to Charlottenburg (Travel Photo Art #1) (Paperback)
Berlin nurtures a true bike culture.
Bikes weave around cars, whirl down sidewalks, and lean against every building. Clusters of bikes are chained to every available post, sign, and handrail.
These humble vehicles are a quintessential part of life in Berlin. Because they're so embedded in the lifestyle, they reflect a lot about the city and its citizens. Chipped paint, baskets, and even the chains used to secure the bikes speak of the people and the place.
In addition to a vibrant bike culture, Berlin and northeast Germany are striking places for tourism. On offer are a unique blend of architectural styles, a temperate seasonal climate, and a global city for culture, politics, media and science. Now visitors can expand their knowledge with an artist's view of Berlin's neighborhoods, like Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and more.
The color photos in this book are paired with evocative titles that convey the artistic essence of the Bikes of Berlin (a Travel Photo Art Book).
In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, intense productions are your passport to new perspectives on famous places. Peer around corners and discover a unique way to interact with monuments and memorials you thought you knew.
This popular series includes titles that mix text with the pictures. Books like Notre Dame Cathedral: Our Lady of Paris, featuring photos taken months before the 2019 fire, become keepsakes associated with a specific site. Titles like Lidice Lives and Terezin and Theresienstadt are deeply meaningful for families touched by the Holocaust.
