The Friedrichstrasse is a 3,3 kilometer long avenue in the center of the german capital. It begins at Orienburger Tor and ends at Mehringplatz. Both ends represent different social and economic situations in the city. In the middle, where it crosses the boulevard Unter den Linden is the touristical center of attraction. Several malls with shops of luxury brands are located here. Office buildings and tourist attractions like Checkpoint Charlie make the area even more attractive for international visitors. One part of the street has been in the former GDR. At Mehringplatz, the southern end of the Friedrichstrasse one finds social housing. The series is part of my ongoing project "Global Avenue" in which I depict the globalization of lifestyle. I photographed on different continents in large metropolises. This series has been photographed in July 2014.
