– Welcome

Welcome to blog.chromographix.com.

I’ve been wandering around Berlin with a camera for a number of years now, taking photos of everything that interested me: the latest piece of graffiti, a man on a bicycle, shadows, reflections . . .

But it was all fairly indiscriminate, and was beginning to bore me, so I started doing more project-based work, photo series, sequences of images, but it was still missing something: text.

And so this is the result: a blog.

I hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to comment on anything that interests you.
