Bergedorfer Bier – Beer Belly

Bergedorfer Bier gives us men showing their love for beer

An outdoor print campaign created by Jung von Matt/Alster, German beer brand Bergedorfer Bier had fun parodying classic maternity photographs – men showing their love for beer with some nice pregnancy poses. Very clever 🙂

Jean-Marie Donat – TeddyBär

Jean-Marie Donat's mildly creepy book of men dressed as polar bears

Jean-Marie Donat: This mysterious and mildly terrifying series of vintage photographs taken in Germany between the first World War and the 1960s has now been published in a fascinating book entitled TeddyBär. Finding an old photograph of a man dressed as a polar bear by accident, publisher and art collector Jean-Marie Donat held on to the picture for fifteen years without thinking much about it until discovering a second, then a third similar image. It was then that Jean-Marie Donat had the idea to collect more photographs of these interesting men dressed as polar bears, posing with passersby, on the beach, and even with Nazi soldiers. So strange yet very intriguing – love it! 🙂

Berlin in July 1945 – Must-Watch!

Berlin as it looked just after the Second World War

Berlin: So this is how Berlin looked just after the Second World War. This fascinating colour footage shows the state of the city in the Summer of 1945, just after the Second World War and the capitulation of Germany. The vision gives us a rare glimpse of the slow return to daily life in Berlin after years of destruction from the war. Footage from the destroyed city includes the Reichstag, Brandenburger Tor, Adlon, Führerbunker, Unter den Linden, women working in the streets amongst the rubble and Berlin slowly coming back to life. Amazing stuff!
