The city of Berlin has more bridges than Venice (916 actually). The newest and one of the largest bridges is the Minna-Todenhagen-Bridge. The shown Image was photographed some days after opening for public. It was a evening under very dense fog (longexposure). The shown photo is part of my longtime project about the Berlin Spree-River at night. A large version of this file can be seen in my website.

Berlin born and raised. He has portrayed Berlin at night for many years. Tyrel-nightmotifs do not fit a classical genre. He sees the illuminated metropole as an erected space in mechanical motion. The single individual is rare in his photos and then only as forms. His photos remind us of night shots shown on postcards of the early twentieth century. Yet, his work is not nostalgic. This look also encompasses modern forms of architecture and its illumination. He works in both analog and digital formats.
