photos: Marga van den Meydenberg
Dutch photographer Marga van den Meydenberg has a mission: to photograph as many unique Berlin personalities as possible in her popup photo studio in Berlin. In her own words “every human being is unique and therefore a piece of art.” And this is totally true, you can see that each Berliner has added their own and unique point of eccentricity to each picture. I can even glimpse a Dalí influence in the approach of this project.
Funny, surreal, colorful, unexpected… and above all: spontaneous. Every portrait is a new surprise, a different story. Marga sees every photo as an experiment to discover how far she can go with the model. In the end, the collaboration between artist and model is the best way to create unforgettable moments. When you enter the studio, time doesn’t matter, leave your hurries behind, be willing to share all your creativity and don’t be afraid to give it a try. The more personality you show, the better.
So far Marga has been taking photos in Neukölln, Kreuzberg, Wilmersdorf, Mitte, Steglitz, and Schöneberg. Currently, she has her pop-up studio in Gesundbrunnen on Schwedenstr. 16. You can still visit her there from Wednesday to Saturday 14-19h to have your portrait taken until July 28th, 2018 when this edition of the project will close with a finissage.
