Lichtenberg begins where Holger Biermann’s Berlin tours usually end: behind Ostkreuz. Where the vast emptiness begins. Where he rarely encounters other people in the street. Dimensions are large. People have and leave one another plenty of space. He roams by himself through the tower block meadows, through allotment gardens and along private streets. At the city limits, Lichtenberg is all field and village. This is the story his photographs tell.
