A special venue viewed through special eyes: on 23 September 2018, photographers who are active on the social media channel Instagram met in the Berlin Philharmonie for an Instameet. This event allows participants outside of official opening hours to visit and capture image of spaces and locations that are usually full of people.
The special architecture of Hans Scharoun, the architect of the concert hall, the 125th anniversary of whose birth fell on 20 September, offers the creative photographer’s eye many unusual motifs and perspectives. Whether in the concert hall, in the foyer or outdoors. A nice side benefit of the Instameet, organised by VisitBerlin, was that the photographers, who normally only communicate via Instragram, got to know each other personally. The results of their shoot can now be viewed on Instagram.
