[A]t night, the artist Romeo Alaeff walked the streets of Berlin alone with his camera. He took photos of the skyline, of young people fighting on the train, and empty pools and buildings. He captured this loneliness and transience in [his book which] ...is inspired by that sense of being uprooted, of living somewhere new and trying to orient oneself in a new land.--Sophie Kemp Garage
