It goes without saying that Berlin is a city rich in history and culture, and arguably one of the most exciting, vibrant cities in Europe.
The North-Eastern city in Germany offers such a diversity in terms of culture, politics, media, architecture, and science, that there is an infinite amount of ways to capture it via photography. Berlin-based photographer Philip Dase has found his niche; he specialises in urban landscape fused with long-exposure photography and creates quite beautiful, almost eerie, images from around the German capital.
The remarkable thing about his images is the lack of people in them; offering a serene and peaceful take on the city, away from the hustle and bustle. The frequent use of water and long exposure creates a certain atmosphere and tension. Many of the images are taken at sunrise or sunset that help achieve some stunning yet subtle colours (never over the top and saturated to death), while also we don’t doubt involving early mornings and thus shooting at a quieter time.
