‘When I received an invitation from the American Academy in Berlin to spend a few months in the German capital, I knew it would be my last chance to at last make Berlin Living Rooms. The Berlin of 2014 was a far cry from the divided and battered Berlin of the 1960s and 1970s I had known. It was now a glorious city where all the young people of the world wanted to move and where many famous artists had chosen to work. The Berliner Luft was still contagious. I embarked on my voyeuristic journey with the gusto and curiosity of a new visitor’.
After re-releasing Paris Living Rooms and New York Living Rooms, we’re excited to launch the reprint of our sold-out publication Berlin Living Rooms, by Dominique Nabokov. Over the years we’ve developed a close relationship with Dominique, after featuring a selection of her beautiful interior photos from Paris Living Rooms (2002) and New York Living Rooms (1998) in issue #5 of the magazine. We’ve had the privilege of publishing the third instalment in a project that has evolved for more than 20 years to become a sort of holy trinity of interior photography books.
Berlin Living Rooms features original photography by Dominique Nabokov and texts by American novelist Darryl Pinckney and ZEIT magazin editor Christoph Amend.
