Alex Flach, Berlin Calling
In Berlin Calling, Alex Flach presents an extraordinary collection of photographs that explore life in his native city over the last twelve years. Responding to The Clash’s famous album London Calling, his work depicts the heart of Berlin’s creative atmosphere and simultaneously functions as a timely marker of the fast pace of change the city has undergone since the fall of the wall.
Born in 1974, Alex Flach grew up in Berlin as a “street kid”. In the mid-90’s he discovered street photography as a medium with which to document his experiences. Alongside countless publications in renowned magazines, some of his clients include: Levi’s, Adidas, Vans, Spiewak, Nike and Etnies. He has also worked on video projects for Carhartt Europe, Sony Music, and Nokia.
