In my series, Underground Moscow – Berlin I try to capture these two places in a different way, to show the ongoing movement, the business of the places, where you are in a constant crowd – still alone.
The many interesting sounds of the incoming and outgoing trains, the muffled steps of passers-by and their quiet conversations, the announcements of the trains; it is a pity that I cannot convey all these sounds in my pictures.To be able to express what I feel there and to give the viewer some impression, I started to experiment with double exposures.
About Birka Wiedmaier
About eight years ago I picked up my first digital camera and started exploring the world around me with it in hand. In the beginning, it was part of exploring Moscow, a huge and beautiful city and to keep memories of my walks. But soon I realised that with a camera in hand I paid more attention to details and the people around me. I was just fascinated and this fascination never left me. I tried various genres, but my greatest fascination lies in street photography. The people of a city, town or village bring life to the place and give it a face. I like to capture them in candid moments, unnoticed. [Official Website]
