After 16 Hours of Techno – A Series of Berghain Portraits

Berghain Portraits

photos: Philipp Pusch

If you would even dare to try to take party photos at Berghain you would probably be banned to hell or worse. I’ve seen furious bar tenders leap over the counter to kick people out who took photos of each other with their smart phones. But luckily they can’t prohibit any kind of photography outside of their sacret premise so taking pictures of the people in front of the club is a good alternative. Recently a photoset of the people in the cue of Berghain made the rounds on the internet. And today we have a brand new one for you by young photographer and communications designer Philipp Pusch who stationed himself several weeks in front of the famous club with his middle format camera to portrait the people who went home after 8, 12 or 16 hours in the techno tempel. The result is a beautiful black and white series of 16 portraits of the young and charismatic Berghain goers who look surprisingly good after all these hours of dancing. Enjoy the series after the jump.

    What they really look like is: relaxed. At peace.
    Tranquil, having shaked off some of the plasticity of society.
