From 2010 to 2013 Göran Gnaudschun photographed the scene on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, a scene comprised of stranded individuals and runaways, the homeless and marginalized, attention-seekers and show-offs. Many are on drugs; all of them drink. But, in a way, the Alexanderplatz is their home. It allows them to escape their social isolation and offers a sense of safety and security, even if tenderness and violence make for a volatile blend. Göran Gnaudschun was there, on-site, and gradually established contacts so he could take portraits and situational photographs, conduct interviews, and sum up his experiences in words of his own.
