Photo by @nadjawohlleben Day 7 | This is my last post for @burndiary. It’s been an honour to take you on a visual journey with me. I’m equally happy and grateful to have had this opportunity. I’d like to thank you all for following along, for the support, likes, comments, and new Instagram companions. Your encouragement is highly appreciated! Y’all made a girl really happy! I’d especially like to thank @diegorlando for asking me to contribute here and thereby becoming a part of the marvelous BURN diary family. Thanks also to @fran.gennari for previously featuring my work on @burnmagazine and for the kind words you lent me. And of course thanks and hail to @davidalanharvey the master himself for tutoring me back in 2014 when I took part in his workshop in Dubai. It made me grow enormously, both as a photographer and as a person. Thank you, everyone in this amazing photographer family community that is BURN!!! One LOVE ️, Nadja. #happiness #thankyou #feelingblessed #grateful #onelove #burndiary #NadjaWohlleben

Muddy business

Photo by @nadjawohlleben Day 7 | Muddy doggy business! Over the weekend the temperatures slightly rose above 0 degrees celsius, the snow melted and left Berlin’s parks in a really slushy state. #Muddydoggy #dog #Berlin #photodiary #burndiary #streetphotography

Camera madness

The Others

Edit this
Photo by @nadjawohlleben Day 6 | One last picture I made yesterday at ‘The Others’ exhibition @koeniggalerie curated by Elmgreen & Dragset. Koenig Galerie is located inside St. Agnes, a former catholic church. Playing with the theological surrounding, ‘The Others’ shows works of fifteen artists who are each challenging established ways of incorporating the body in Christian iconography. The artists question issues of gender, race, belief, sexuality and mortality. With Islam dominating the news media since recent years, the title proposes a reality where we are all potentially ‘The Others’, said the curators. The object pictured above, held by performance artists, was created by Santiago Sierra. #TheOthers #santiagosierra #MakeArtNotWar #KönigGalerie #TakeMeToChurch #Iconography #Religion #Berlin #nadjawohlleben #art #exhibition

The pictured statue ‘Youth’ was created by artist Ron Mueck. #TheOthers #Youth #RonMueck #BlackJesus #nofilter #MakeArtNotWar #KönigGalerie #TakeMeToChurch #Iconography #Religion #Berlin #nadjawohlleben #art

The Madonna statue pictured above, titled ‘Salvation’ was created by South Korean artist Young-Jun Tak. Today is the last day of the exhibit, so if you are in Berlin I highly recommend you go see it! #salvation #TheOthers #MakeArtNotWar #KönigGalerie #TakeMeToChurch #madonna #Iconography #YoungJunTak #Religion #Berlin #nadjawohlleben #art #nofilter

Light installation

Edit this
Photo by @nadjawohlleben Day 5 | Tonight I finally felt a bit better and had to get out of the house. I went to see a beautiful light installation by James Turrell, the infamous American light artist, in the chapel of Dorotheenstädtischer Cemetery in Berlin. The exhibition occurs during the blue hour just before dusk. In this picturesque show, Turrell plays with the concept of biblical light: starting with blue light, the chapel is then filled with pinks, oranges and reds, mimicking that of a real sunset. A truly divine experience! #jamesturrell #lightinstallation #nofilter #takemetochurch #nadjawohlleben #berlin #art #lettherebelight

Fight

Photo by @nadjawohlleben Day 5 | My sympathy goes out to all my sisters worldwide who are participating in @womensmarch today! I’m really sad that I missed out on the small march in Berlin this morning due to still being chained to my bed with the flu. Therefore, exceptionally I’d like to post an image that I made some months ago of a group of strong ladies who fight for their empowerment. Meet the Taekwondo ladies from Selbstverteidigung für Frauen in Berlin led by trainer Joy. #BadassLadies #FemaleWarriors #FightLikeaGirl #TaekwondoWomen#WeAreFierce #LadiesStandTall #DontMessWithUs #NinjaPrincesses #ProudToBeaWoman #WomenEmpowerment #FightForYourRights #Berlin

Sledding

Edit this
Photo by @nadjawohlleben Day 4 | I love snow. The way it glitters. The way it muffles all the noises and makes the city fall silent. And of course the many fun options it offers: from snowboarding to sledging. I captured these kids having a blast a few days ago during a walk in my favorite park in Berlin. #winterwonderland #snowflake #berlin #goodtimes #sledge
