Home Sweet Home: Documenting the changes to Berlin's most vibrant borough

The world is always changing, that's for certain. But nowhere has seen a faster or more dramatic transformation than Berlin's inner city borough of Neukölln. In recent years, it has become known as one of the German capital's most dynamic and colourful areas, with the variety and contrast making it a great spot for people watching.

For her series Home Sweet Home, Berlin-based photographer Stefanie Schmid Rincon spent three years wandering Neukölln, armed with her camera to take analog black and white photographs of the changing places and people – all thrown together in a wonderful melting pot of life. It just shows the impact of recent people movement, as more families choose Europe as their new home.

From tomorrow, her fascinating series will be on show at Deutsches Haus in New York University.

Stefanie grew up between Colombia and Germany. She moved to Berlin in 2008 where she graduated from Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin in 2014 and has been working as a freelance photographer for the past five years. Discover more at www.stefanieschmidrincon.com.
