street photography berlin: the swing at mauerpark

I have always been fascinated by the mauerpark swings. because for me the mauerpark swings have an iconic quality. 

mauerpark (literal translation wall park) is a small piece of urban waste land in the prenzlauer berg neighbourhood. and on sundays it will transform it some sort of a happening. a flea market, street food, lots of music, karaoke, graffiti, beer, weed and masses of people. so for anybody interested in berlin street photography mauerpark will provide a motiv rich environment.

berlin mauerpark is of transitory nature. seems like urban planning and gentrification will eventually take their toll. and two of the swings are already gone. so swing while you still can. 

the images were taken on different occasions between 2014 and 2016.
