How do you capture Berlin in only three days?

...especially when one of those days is spent watching and celebrating a world cup match victory?

Yes, it's impossible. Berlin is huge and I found it to be fascinating, disturbing, exciting, depressing and full of all kinds of art. I took over 1,000 photos but managed to edit a set down to fit in my monthly Flickr account quota.

I found myself taking many pictures of buildings, graffiti and advertisements. How and why does a visual anthropologist choose to photograph what s/he does? Do these photographs reveal some bias(es)?

How representative of Berlin are my shots? Click here to see an edited set of Berlin photos from my recent trip.
