She’s back! Nerd Girl has now returned from her vacation in Berlin.This is a wonderful city, where the drinks are cheap and everything is much more laid back than in Copenhagen. As much as I love my own town, it tends to be a bit stock up and too pretentious.
Berliners don’t care about what others think about them – Copenhageners care too much, in my opinion. Anyway, Berlin is a great place to relax and enjoy life,which I did.
I attended a beautiful photo exhibition at Martin-Gropius-Bau of Man Ray and Alexander Rodschenko. It was two different exhibitions, but they were each very interesting and again reminded me how much I enjoy black and white photography. Man Ray of course is famous for his artistic compositions with faces and bodies, contrasts of shapes and shades.
I had never heard of Alexander Rodschenko before, but his work turned out to be just as interesting, though very different from Man Ray. He works with photo collages and had especially portrayed workers during the Russian revolution.
