From 2010 to 2013, Göran Gnaudschun photographed the scene on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, a scene comprised of stranded individuals and runaways, the homeless and marginalised, 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.

Göran Gnaudschun was born in 1971 in Potsdam, Germany. He lives and works in Potsdam, Germany.
