About William Price’s ‘Berliner’: Several visits in the spring of 2011 cumulated in the photographs of Berliner. Even the photographer’s camera can’t see past the weight of history upon the city; undoubtedly we are sure in which metropolis have we actually found ourselves.

Although this work is not a document of the places or buildings connected to Germany’s most recent history, Berliner finds neuralgic points of the new global environment in Berlin such as gentrification and economic crisis, and puts them into revision and reflection.

When I talk to english or french or italian people about berlin, when I tell them how much I love it and so, their first reaction always is “so its a beautiful city then yes!?”.. and I am like, well no, actually not, its ugly! but that’s what most people like about it, its as it is! genuine! and i miss the space in berlin!!! space in the sense of the kinda tangible thing “free room” but also space as a metaphor for free thinking, free development, free living.
