Originally posted on Instagram, the Berlin images of the Metropolis series are collected in a photography book and published by LUNIK BERLIN Verlag. With a foreword by Marc Barbey (German, English, French).
Wolff’s photographs are not about classic city views. They are about a subjective view of Berlin in the present time. The pictures tell of the inhabitants and their urban environment. Patterns of the city emerge, networks of relationships between people, architecture and (artificial) nature. The multi-leveled layers of the photographs take the viewer on an emotional journey through the city. The focus resides in the transformation of the city, provocation and chaos. It is about secrets, as well as visions. We visit train stations and Berlin’s bodies of water, graffiti walls and full shopping malls. But we also see the famous (empty) Berlin squares and stand in front of closed doors of techno clubs in the Corona year of 2020.
Berlin, not easy to describe with words, becomes a tense picture story in “Metropolis, Berlin”. For people interested in photography and Berlin-enthusiasts. For those who live in Berlin, as well as those for whom Berlin is a place of longing.

This series is linked to Fritz Lang’s film with the same name, to the extent that it captures and offers a unique perspective on these structures and modes of transport and how “ordinary people” interact with them.
