Having returned to Berlin for longer than I anticipated, I currently collect impressions, as I rediscover my native town, in a photo album titled ‘The Colours of Berlin’. This photo was taken just as the sun came out after a rainy morning, outside Filmkunstbar Fitzcarraldo, an independent art-house video rental shop in Kreuzberg. As the gentrification of Berlin advances inexorably, it’s reassuring to see that ‘native’ businesses continue to exist.
