Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin


Eric Fischer´s digital visualisation project based on processing photographic images from the world metropoles and sorting them into two groups: made by locals and made by non-locals (tourists), has produced pretty fascinating results for Berlin.

Berlin, the third most often photographed city in Europe, has been captured by many tourists but also by surprisingly large number of locals (well, here at we are doing our best to increase that quota;-)

The red spots on the map mark the field of the tourists´activity, while the blue ones show where the locals´ hunting grounds (yellow spots stand for the lack of information as to the photographer´s status).
