Pieces of Berlin is one of the truely unique and charming fellow Berlin blogs that has been around since 2009 now. Photographer Florian Reischauer captures the people and places of this city in a very understated and modest way showing ordinary people instead of fashionable hipsters and ordinary places instead of fancy shops and cool clubs. With this he manages to give Berlin a very natural and approachable look, far away from the gloss and hype it so often appears to have.
With the success of the blog it was a logical choice for Florian to turn it into a photobook – the result is a beautiful compilation of his work of the past 4 years. The crowdfunded product comes in a 208 page limited hard cover edition of 1000 copies for only 27 EUR and really looks amazing. A perfect Berlin gift and a true gem in our Berlin Goods series. After the jump you’ll find some of my favorite photos from the Pieces of Berlin blog and a preview of the book.
