Hotelroom Curtains

These images are from a new series I'm working on for a while. Since I travel quite a bit and stay in different hotels, I'm always fascinated by the curtains in the hotel rooms.

Most of the curtains in the hotels in different countries, cities and even continents look very similar.

The outside view is totally different though, always interesting and fascinating.

This is my view through the curtains of the hotel rooms I stay and which are my home for a couple of days.

Today I would like to share some new photos from my series Trans-Tableaus.

In November 2014 was the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was such a great energy in the city and such an amazing experience. I took a lot of photos there and some are being added to my different series.

The images below are now part of Trans-Tableaus.
