Kolonie Heimat

Little known, Berlin is home to 70.000 garden plots (which again are organized in 2000 allotments). Their naming not only brings back associations with Germany’s troubled past but also provides insights into the mental state of Berlin’s urban gardeners.

Shortlisted for the German Photobook Award 2010.
