At the art fair with Jo Fischer: a documentation by the man himself

Photo by Jo Fischer. Click image to view the whole album.

Photographer Jo Fischer, who will open his first solo-exhibition at our gallery in Hamburg this Friday, Oct 22 from 8 - 11 p.m. (more info here), joined our team for the whole duration of the PREVIEW art fair in Berlin last week.

Jo was supporting us hands-on 5 long days, from setting up the booth on Wednesday until the dismantling of the fair Sunday night. And at the same time he documented our good times in Berlin with his camera.

This is what really happened (follow this link for a selection of the photos he took).
