One of the things that Berlin has in abundance is abandoned buildings left from the German reunification and the privatization of many East German businesses. The businesses, like the abandoned amusement Park (Spreepark) I visited and photographed earlier in the week, just couldn’t survive in this new world. However even though capitalism did them in, it was a couple of inventive, young capitalist thinking friends who have turned ‘abandoned’ into a business.
Go2Know is a unique tour company in Berlin who will take groups of photographers or videographers through abandoned buildings around the city. Buildings such as a Chemical plant, woman’s clinic, sanitarium, meat factory, water works, Spreepark, and even the old Tempelhof Airport. They have secured special access from the owners to bring people into the buildings and photograph them. The men come from a video and photography production background and knew that photographers would love these types of photographic playgrounds to practice composition and lighting effects.
