Renzo Piano Berlin

POTSDAMER PLATZ 11 , Berlin, Germany - "Standing 70 metres high and boasting 18 floors, POTSDAMER PLATZ 11 is one of the three tallest buildings at Potsdamer Platz. Italian architect Renzo Piano created a prominent landmark for the new city centre with this edifice. In dialogue with the neighbouring tower, POTSDAMER PLATZ 1, this skyscraper forms the northern boundary of the quarter. From its triangular base to its glass tip, it points elegantly and precisely as a compass needle at Potsdamer Platz. The double glass façade ensures natural, energy-efficient cooling of the office tower, while the terracotta-clad rear of the building progressively staggers down to the height of the neighbouring structures. To the south, POTSDAMER PLATZ 11 borders directly on the historical Haus Huth." from https://potsdamerplatz.de/en/architecture/

My photographic journey through Africa

When I arrived in Central Africa, colourful birds surrounded my house. I just needed to look out the window and point my camera.

My work brought me to Cameroon and other countries in Central Africa, like Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Chad, both Congos and the Central African Republic. I also visited the Republic of South Africa many times; absolutely fascinating.

During my travels I witnessed different landscapes, species, people and lifestyles.

Travelling in Africa is very different from travelling in Europe. It’s more dangerous, and takes more time so requires greater patience. Leading to more opportunities to take photos!

Most of my photos were taken spontaneously, often during travel or simply from my house. Some were taken in national parks and nature reserves.

I hope you will enjoy my photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
