During a guided city tour in spring 2017 through the Berlin district Neukölln with special topic "new Neukölln fashion makers" we visited beneath all its fancy handcraft clothing shops also that nice workshop of a hatmaker.
The hatmaker told us about his work and his extraordinary products, but I was not able to pay any attention on his explanation, cause i can't turn my eyes away from his workbench, the wall behind and the whole scenery of this. It was so nice coloured and lighted and sprayed such a nice bit morbid mood.
Impatiently I waited until the end of his speech and asked him after the crowd leaved about the story of that workshop. Surprisingly he told me the whole arrangement is not native. All the interior is brought in, made or styled, colored and arranged by himself. Even the holes in the wall plaster. Very impressive and I love it much.
The outcome of this shot was also very impressive to me.
With that colleague of him in front of it looks a bit like an old dutch painting IMO. Please take a minute and dive in, so maybe you can understand a bit of my captivation.
