Published in fLIP https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2020/12/published-in-flip Corona Diary 2020 is now featured in fLIP, the magazine of London Independent Photography. The project documented the changes imposed during the Covid lockdown in the UK and Germany, following developments since the early beginnings in March 2020 when the pandemic rapidly spread through Europe. Combining photo journalism, self-portrait and art photography, the project gives a very personal and yet universal account of how the Corona pandemic disrupted the economy and changed our daily routines.

fLIP magazine is published and distributed by London Independent Photography.

A wider selection of the project is currently being featured on Instagram as corona_diary_2020 until end of January 2021.

Exhibiting at The Greenwich Gallery https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2019/12/exhibiting-at-the-greenwich-gallery Creating an echo to my exhibition at St Martins-In-the-Field, Trafalgar Square, selected work from China Today is now showing at the other end of the city at my favourite gallery in town: The Greenwich Gallery.

This is a unique constellation, where exhibits of the same project are showing in different parts of London, recreating the original link and dialogue between cultures and spaces that gave origin to this photo study. Based on the concept to develop a photo story originating from an ongoing dialogue between strangers, the resulting photo study of China Today is the portrayal of a country in transition. The presented work sums up the relationship between the traditional Chinese way-of-life and the emerging modern mega-city.

Designed as a Christmas exhibition, the work will be showing

19 Dec. 2019 – 15 Jan. 2020

At: The Greenwich Gallery

Opening times: Mon–Fri 9am–5.00pm; Sat and Sun 1–5pm (closed on bank holidays)

Address: Linear House, Peyton Place, Greenwich, London SE10 8RS
Walking distance from Greenwich Station (trains and DLR)


Please pop by and enjoy the exhibition at this lovely gallery.

China Today: A walk between the past and the future

The photo project China Today is the study of a country in transition. Set between the traditional Chinese way-of-living and the modern mega-city, the project was developed over a period of four years and several visits to Chongqing, Chengdu and surrounding areas.

In line with the strong social and cultural character of the work, a selection of the project is now showing at St Martins-in-the-Field in the Bishop Ho Ming Wah Association & Community Centre. Based just opposite from the National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square, St Martins-in-the-Field is known for its strong support of social causes and the Bishop Ho Ming Wah Association & Community Centre situated in the basement of the church was set up to provide important and necessary support to the many Chinese immigrants living in London. Following the tradition set last year when a selection of this work was exhibited in the Sahne Art Museum in Chengdu, China, this project is again finding a Chinese audience amongst the many visitors of St Martins-in-the-Field.

Dates: 22 Nov 2019 – 28 Feb 2020

Venue: The Bishop Ho Ming Wah Association & Community Centre
Address: St Martins-in-the-Field, Trafalgar Square, Charing Cross, London WC2N 4JJ

Living with Horses https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2019/7/living-with-horses Beginning of summer I engaged in a project of a different kind. Staying in North Germany on a horse farm I immersed myself in the daily activities of a life with horses. Following the every-day tasks of the Joka Farm from dawn to dusk, I learned about the people, the horses and the challenges of small scale farming in Germany. Embedded in the local culture, I met the people, the horses and took part in all activities. The result is a narrative in pictures of the daily joys and challenges of this very different life-style.

Working for AHF https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2019/4/dessie-ethiopia In March I was back working in Ethiopia this time with the German help-organisation called Äthiopien-Hilfe Freinsheim. Äthiopien-Hilfe Freinsheim work exclusively in Dessie in the Amhara in the north-central part of the country. Based in Dessie I worked for two weeks on a photo-consultancy project, developing insight into the local culture and many of the difficult living conditions in town. The founders of Äthiopien-Hilfe Freinsheim have a well-established relationship with the people of Dessie as they have worked in town for more than 20 years.

Traditionally Äthiopien-Hilfe Freinsheim have successfully worked with street children and are now considering expanding their projects to include support for those affected by the loss of relatives due to AIDS. The high occurrence of AIDS related deaths in the region means that both young children and the elderly are left to fend for themselves as many of the adults or "middle" generation fall victims to the disease. 

Part of my photo-consultancy was to develop a portfolio that portraits this difficult reality and shows how local communities are dealing with the needs of those left behind in the moment. Working closely with local staff and partners, I walked Dessie's streets for over two weeks and visited many neighbourhoods and homes to meet the helpers and the helped.

Installing water pumps in Chad https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2017/4/water-pumps Providing water pumps in Tchad's remote areas

 

Chad, 2017. Refugees from the Central African Republic fetching water at a newly installed water pump.

Earlier this year I travelled through Chad with a missionary from the Lutheran Brotherhood. Part of their activities in Chad is to facilitate installation of water pumps in remote areas. Working closely with the community, they support and partially finance the installation of water pumps. In areas where the next water hole is a long walk away and will often provide unhealthy water, this makes a big difference to the communities. The water from the pumps has drinking water quality. In the southern part of the country the pump project also works with refugees from the Central African Republic.

Lake Tana area, Ethiopia, 2017. Women working in a reforestation project.

Beginning of the year I travelled back to Ethiopia, this time to work again for NABU, the German Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union. Travelling around the Lake Tana area with the local NABU staff, I documented the many aspects of their reforestation projects which are a collaboration between NABU, the local government and the local population.

Bustamante, Costa Rica, 2017. Harvesting beans.

Over Christmas and New Year's I visited Costa Rica to look into traditional subsistence farming. Some say that in Costa Rica "children are born with bread under their arms". This saying makes reference to the tradition of family farming which allowed families to live rather self-sufficient in the past. Today there are only few families still living in the old ways while the country is becoming more urbanised and people buy their food supplies in the super markets. In Bustamante some still eat the beans they plant and harvest on their own land.

Gidole, Ethiopia, 2016. Derashe woman.

Back in London after spending three weeks in Ethiopia where I worked with EthioGuzo and the Cultural Office on a research about the local Derashe culture in and around Gidole town. The Derashe are one of the many different indigenous nations that make up the people of Ethiopia. The Derashe consist of nine clans. Each Clan is organised by their chiefs who report to the Head of Clan. The men always carry the name of the clan while the women marry into their husbands clan. Members of the same clan are not allowed to marry.

London, 2016. Cranbrook Estate, East End.

Continuing to photograph the urban environment and close to home, earlier in the year I spend a weekend in London's East End working closely with Laura Nobel and Robert Clayton exploring the Cranbrook Estate, studying its dream to create affordable housing for all, and meeting some of its occupants, who told me about the English working class reality and their history.

The Cranbrook Estate is a housing estate designed by Francis Skinner, Douglas Bailey and Berthold Lubetkin and was first opened in 1963.

While working for NABU in the Kaffa region I visited the hot spring off the beaten track near Bonga. The hot spring is very popular with the local population who believe it has healing powers. Depending on the individual case, people may visit for a day or stay for up to two weeks. The boys were enjoying a more shallow part of the river, where the water is hotter.

Ethiopia, Kaffa, 2015. Menja woman producing an injira plate.

While working for NABU in the Kaffa region I met women from the Menja (also known as Manja) minority. The Menja are a minority who still follow their old tradition and life-style and depend on the local forests for their livelihood. As their culture is different from that of the Kafecho majority, they continue to be marginalized and discriminated against.

When I visited some Menja families near Bonga, the women had gone into the forest to pick clay so they could produce injira plates which they would sell on the nearby market. Injira is Ethiopia's main food, a sour flatbread used to scoop up meat and vegetable stews.

Wild Coffee in Ethiopia https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2016/3/wild-coffee-in-ethiopia Woman picking wild coffee

 

Ethiopia, Kaffa, 2015. Woman picking wild coffee.

Working for NABU (Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union) in Ethiopia last year, the assignment was to document the local communities who live with and off the local cloud forest in Kaffa, a region in the Southwest of the country.

The region is best known for its wild coffee forests and is believed to be the birthplace of coffee. In one of the coffee forests is an old coffee tree, said to be the Mother of Coffee. And while the forest is protected and kept alive, the coffee bushes grow wildly in the extensive forest and the local population enter the forest in small groups to harvest the coffee as needed for home consumption or to sell at the closest local market.

My journey to study the coffee harvest had started at the beginning of the year in Costa Rica and now, towards the end of the year, I found myself across the ocean, in a very different reality, looking at the same subject from a very different angle.

Silvio is a small-scale farmer in Limeira, Minas Gerais. On his little plot of land he plants herbs, greens and vegetables which he sells to local customers. Apart from being very charming, his produce is organic and delicious - yes I tested it. He is slowly expanding his little business and as his reputation builds can live off the sales of his produce.

Brazil, Minas Gerais, 2016. Transatlantic Rainforest.

While photographing the Iracambi project I had many opportunities to visit the rainforest and could spend time in and around the forest to notice its wonders. The transatlantic rainforest once grew all along the Brazilian coast and formed a kind of green belt that drew water from the clouds as they arrived from the sea and provided much needed drinking water for the Brazilian hinterlands. As the rainforest slowly disappears from the Brazilian map, droughts are becoming more common.

Fighting herons https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2015/11/fighting-herons Fighting birds

 

 

Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, 2015. Fighting herons.

While working on a project with fishermen in Brazil, water birds became a common sight as they sit around the edges waiting for a bite while the fishermen clean out their catch. It seemed though that the Herons were quite territorial and rarely would tolerate another of their kind close by. When two met it would not be long before a fight would break out. This is a little sequence of the Heron's quarrel over territory and fish.

The presented photos are part of my ongoing project to photographically research and document traditional work processes in Latin America. For the photo documentary project Coffee Harvest in Costa Rica I spend Christmas and the beginning of 2015 on coffee plantations in Costa Rica, where I followed the rhythm of the coffee harvest and the day-to-day routines of the workers. In my work I focus on photographing what I have come to call “invisible” culture, i.e. day-to-day aspects of the local culture and life that are simple routines which no longer attract much attention.

The little Micos, or common marmosets, can be found in bigger and smaller groups all around the Pão de Açucar (Sugar Loaf) and Urca. And I find it hard to resist taking a few photos. As they are regularly fed by visitors, they are quite used to humans and have become rather tame. And they have grown strong in numbers. These days I am back in town for a few weeks and look forward to adding a few more pictures to my collection.

Brazil, Cidade de Deus, 2015. Children's play.

While visiting the City of God, a chanty town near Rio de Janeiro, I met these charming girls. One of the girls had been given a puppy as a present from her dad and they were happily playing in the streets. I enjoyed watching the innocence of their play and, remembering where I was and how much violence this community had survived, I realized they were showing me what peace looks like.

City of God ballerinas https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2015/8/city-of-god-ballerinas City of God ballerinas, Brazil, 2015.

 

City of God ballerinas is part of my project with Casa de Santa Ana, a day-care centre for the elderly in the Cidade de Deus or City of God as the neighbourhood became known after the international success of the movie with the same name. Cidade de Deus is a poor neighbourhood or shanty town situated south of Rio de Janeiro. In recent years Casa de Santa Ana started using the open space of their function room to offer classes for children from the community. Inviting both the elderly and the young brings a nice energy to the day-centre and for many of the girls being able to have ballet classes allows them to fulfill a dream.

One of the photos exhibited at the 8th Greenwich Annuale was Mother with Child. The photo was taken in Honduras while I was working on my project about 'invisible culture'. In the project I explored those aspects of a culture that underline every-day interactions and are considered so "normal" that the local population no longer notice them but these interactions are nevertheless an integral part of a community's or country's culture. Mother with Child was taken south of Tegucigalpa while visiting members of a local community.

Another project I was privileged to work with while in Brazil, was Casa de Santa Ana in Cidade de Deus, or City of God as the community became known throughout Europe and the USA after the success of the movie City of God that left most of the world believing that City of God was a place of young people, drug lords, drugs, parties and sex.

Casa de Santa Ana is a day centre for the elderly buzzing with activities. The house offers medical support, activities, food, and a space where people can meet, be together and feel at home. I visited Casa de Santa Ana several times over a period of 2 months.

While working in Brazil I visited the Iracambi project in Minas Gerais. My first visit to Iracambi was some years back and since I had returned on different occasions. This time I spend a week on the property working with the founders, staff and volunteers to develop a visual profile of the Iracambi project. Iracambi have set themselves the target to create a space where farming and reforestation co-exist. One part of  Iracambi is an NGO working with volunteers who come from around the world and do all kinds of work and research in the forest and streams. The reforestation project is an integral part of the property and over the years the Mata Atlantica, the Atlantic Rainforest, has successfully re-grown bringing along a great diversity of flora, fauna and much needed drinking water. Now that the first target is reached and the forest regrown on the property, Iracambi work with the local farmers, land owners and surrounding National Parks to encourage reforestation and create a migration belt allowing the Atlantic Rainforest to slowly stretch across the region, connecting from one property to the next. If you would like to learn more about the project please click on this link.

Gari - the street cleaners of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

 

Between projects and while walking along the beaches and public places in Rio de Janeiro I could not help noticing the beautiful orange uniforms worn by the street cleaners. The “gari”, the street cleaners, work for Comlurb, the company that uses a bright orange as the brand colour for their employees' uniforms. The many "gari", men and women working for Comlurb keep Rio and its beaches tidy. Many of the women, especially the younger women, seemed to take good care of their looks, were done up nicely and look very pretty as a result. Spending time in the streets I started talking to some of them, and found out how much pride these women take in their job.

“Not everyone can work for Comlurb. You have to take part in a ‘concurso’, a public test, and only the best get selected." “It is a good job. We work for the council and have all our working rights guaranteed.” ”We get a lot of respect from the public.” ... were some of the comment they made. And when I mentioned that I thought they had done themselves up very nicely, some replied: “You have to make an effort, don’t you?”

Barely back from Costa Rica, where I spent Christmas and the beginning of the year documenting the coffee harvest and family farming, beginning of March I left town again to work in Brazil on several documentary projects over the period of three months.

Visiting Rio de Janeiro for the first time after the World Cup, I was curious whether I would notice any significant changes to the city. The first thing I noticed was the strong police presence in the streets of the so-called Zona Sul, the more touristy neighbourhoods. Having grown up in Brazil during the military dictatorship, I am used to the presence of armed police and security guards. But then ... I could not remember seeing so many police in the streets. In March, at the end of the Brazilian summer, the police seemed to be everywhere. Here a police car parked on a corner, there riding on the horses, on the beach, on bikes ... wherever I looked, I noticed the presence of the Military Police (the police force that patrols the streets). Curious, I went out to meet them and learn more about who they are and how the Military Police are organised ...

Meeting the chief Pawanã Crody Kariri Xocó and his son in Paraty, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil. A group of the Kariri-Xocó who are originally from the state of Alagoas in the Northeast of Brazil had come to Rio de Janeiro state to introduce the wider public to their traditional culture and continued struggle for survival. Today the Kariri-Xocó survive in a mixed community which includes members from various surviving indigenous ethnicities and quilombos from the Northeast.

This photo was taken while meeting some of the members from the Kariri-Xocó in Paraty, Rio de Janeiro. The Kariri-Xocó are from the northeast of Brazil and live in the state of Alagoas. Some of their members travel around Brazil to introduce the general public to their culture and continued struggle for survival. The name Kariri-Xocó was adopted some 100 years ago when the Xocó, who found themselves driven off their land by invading farmers, sought refuge with the Kariri on the other side of the river to survive. Today the Kariri-Xocó survive as an impoverished community which also includes survivors from other indigenous tribes and quilombos.

London, England, 2015. London deconstruction.

Following up on my earlier observations about Changing Shanghai I could not help but notice that London is undergoing a similar process. From the East to the city to the West, buildings are being taken down and it is difficult to walk through the city without hearing the by-now all too familiar sound of mechanical noise that alerts us to demolition and construction.

Villa Alianza, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2013. Nanko Geerdines van Buuren.

Always interested to get involved with another human rights project, I first met Nanko in 2008 while living in Brazil. Since, a visit to the IBISS projects in the 'Zona Norte'  was a regular on my agenda when in Rio de Janeiro. For many years I teamed up with Nanko and followed him into the remote and poor areas of Zona Norte, many of which continue dominated by the drug lords. It was a shock to learn about his death while back in Rio de Janeiro. He will be missed dearly.

The presented photos are  part of an ongoing project to photographically research and document traditional processes in Latin America. In Working Women I look at the roles women’s work plays in society and economy. In my work I focus on photographing what I call the “invisible” culture, i.e. aspects of culture that manifest themselves in day-to-day moments and the working life.

Nanjing, China, 2014. Nanjing bikes.

A project that was little published last year is a photographic research I made about the every-day culture, emerging social and cultural tensions in modern-day urban China on the example of the "bike culture" in Nanjing. Over the summer I had the opportunity to visit China. What stood out for me was how fast the urban culture was changing and the tension this created between the traditional Chinese life-style and the new affluent urban ambitions. In China the bike has been a traditional and well-established means of transport and it seemed to me that the bike, it's use and transformation illustrated well how the daily lives in China were changing. "Nanjing bikes" became a complex project that reflects my observations about this emerging tension about survival and adaptation. Please click on the link for the story.

Adobe is a sun-dried brick. In Honduras it is still common that families make their homes of adobe. The bricks are handmade of clay and left to dry in the sun for two days. This process leaves the brick hard and ready to use. Families showed me houses made of adobe that had been family homes over two and more generations and were over 100 years old.

Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan, 2013. As a photographer I consider working with my archive as important as working on new projects.

This set is from my visit to Tokyo and Kyoto September last year. Less published, I make landscape and street photography part of my project work because it gives literally the wider picture and shows the characteristics of a city, area or place. Looking at my own take on street photography was inspired by the season on street photography – On Our Streets at the Greenwich Gallery.

Great news! My photo essay was shortlisted for the Travel Photographer of the Year 2013 in the category Vanishing & Emerging Cultures.

The essay shows the descendents and house of Colonel Paulino (Pernambuco, 1838-1920) who was a very rich and powerful landlord. The history of the Northeast of Brazil was defined by the legendary “Coroneis”, who owned farms the size of European countries and reigned supreme. The photo essay shows the descendents and what is left of the former legendary wealth.

Children Can Do was produced as a celebration of how children make the world a better place. The photo chosen for the 2014 calendar is from my work with Crescer e Viver, a social circus based at Praça Onze, in the heart Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Crescer e Viver use circus activities to help children and teenagers from the local favela develop a sense of self-worth and can-do-it mentality.

The calendar was endorsed by the Rt Hon Lord Mayor Alderman Roger Gifford and launched at Mansion House in London.

The presented work while relating to the present bears an echo from the past. Dona Carninha and her family can trace their ancestry back to the first slaves brought to the estate of Colonel Paulinhos, a powerful landlord in the hinterlands of the state of Pernambuco. Exploring the idea of how the past is still present and influencing today's social reality in the Northeast of Brazil, the exhibit invites the viewer to slow down, take a moment to enter the presented reality.

Tokyo, Japan, 2013. Tsukiji Market is the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world. An estimated 2,000 tons of marine products are handled in Tsukiji Fish Market every day and the tuna auction is a very important part of the market's early morning routines. Once the tuna is layed out in the auction house and valued, the licensed buyers inspect all fish before the bidding starts.

Mata Sul, Northeast Brazil, 2013. As part of the dam project for Rio Una, small communities like Engenho Verde have been told to leave the area. For the little community this means to leave behind the only home they have known. Some families have lived on the property for generations and this is the only reality they know. As the little community struggles to come to terms with the impact of the dam project, each family has to decide where to go from here.

This summer saw another amazing season of samba in London. The competition for the Queen of the Bateria for the London School of Samba was one such event which celebrated the passion for the Brazilian dance in London. The competing dancers showed amazing skills and great passion throughout the competition. This year's event was held at Floripa and the competition was fierce. It was another amazing show of samba and competence. In the end the judges and audience made their choice. For another year, London School of Samba has a new Queen of the Bateria.

Uppsala's historic marks https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2013/8/uppsala_sweden Uppsala

 

This selection is part of a photo project I did in Uppsala, Sweden, where I explored the city's long and significant history by looking at its architecture and building styles. Uppsala is located about 70 km from Stockholm and became home of the Archbishop of Sweden in 1164. In 1477 the Uppsala university was founded making Uppsala the oldest centre for academic education in the country. The city's historic moments were marked by significant building projects and varying building styles, giving the city a unique visual identity.

Exhibiting at the Sixth Greenwich Annuale https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2013/8/greenwich_annuale Dona Carninha

 

Dona Carninha is the descendent of Dona Zézinha and Dona Rosária who were slaves of Coronel Paulinho. I met Dona Carninha while researching the reality of Quilombos (communities of descendants of slaves) in the Northeast of Brazil. Being able to trace her ancestry back to the first slaves Coronel Paulinho brought to Fazenda Varzinha dos Paulinhos, his vast estate in the hinterlands of Pernambuco state, Dona Carninha had a very painful and powerful story to tell. And despite her blindness, Dona Carninha had a very clear vision of the world around her.

Sugar cane harvest https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2013/7/sugar-cane Sugar cane

 

Sugar cane harvest in Mata Sul, state of Pernambuco, Northeast Brazil. Sugar cane dominates the landscape of the so-called Mata Norte and Mata Sul (North Forest and Sul Forest), areas which traditionally were overgrown by the Transatlantic Rainforest and, over the past centuries and decades, have become completely dominated by sugar cane plantations. Sugar cane production in the area has a long tradition of aggressive expansion and slave labour and to this day, echoes of its past influence the present. In the past years I have visited the area repeatedly to learn about the ecological and social impact of the sugar cane production and the relationship traditional local populations have with their job and the farms they work on.

Drought in the Northeast of Brazil https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2013/7/drought Drought

 

Although I visited Pernambuco before, this was my first visit to the Sertão, a region in the hinterlands of Northeastern Brazil which is renowned for its recurring droughts. The Sertão is a dry land with not many water reserves and if the annual rain does not come, those surviving of subsistence agriculture suffer the dire consequences. In preparation of my visit I heard that there was an ongoing drought but we only became aware of the full extend when we started to visit local families. We learned that the drought had been ongoing for two years and that it was entering its third year. Leaving the local population with not much alternatives, those who could had left for urban centers and jobs elsewhere. Those who stayed watched helplessly as animals and vegetation slowly died.

Exhibiting at the PM Gallery https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2013/5/pm-gallery-2013 Small Adventures

 

Exhibiting at the PM Gallery

In Small Adventures I explore a different way of interpreting photography, presenting an image that goes beyond 'taking a photo', and, within the presented visual reality, challenging the boundaries between photography and art. As a result the exhibited art blurs the line between the two disciplines, leaving the onlooker wondering if they are looking at a painting or a photograph.

The exhibition opens 17 May – 9 June, 2013, @ PM Gallery, Walpole Park, Mattock Lane, London W5 5EQ
Opening hours: Tue - Fri 1–5pm, Sat 11am-5pm

IBISS were building a football pitch, so the community would have their very own place where to train, compete, meet and let some steam of. Speaking to the locals around, everybody seemed very excited about the prospect to have a space for play, sports and recreation.

Cape Verde https://www.angelikaberndt.com/blog/2012/4/cabo-verde

 

During a visit to Cape Verde, I photographed the many aspects of fishing and the community on Sal Island. Cape Verde is an island country consisting of ten islands situated in the central Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Western Africa near Senegal and Mauritania. On Sal Island fishing is an important commercial and community activity. Daily the fishers would go out early in the morning and on return the community would come together on the local pier to clean out, sell and buy the catch of the day. A selection of the photos was published in the book "IMPRESSIONS Cape Verde". Please click on the link for more information.
