Ever wanted to go people watching in front of Berlin’s famed Berghain club on a Sunday morning? So did photographer Oliver Eglin, who took a series of portraits of clubbers post-euphoria, or as he puts it, ‘in the transitional stage between the fantasy of Berghain/Panorama and the blandness of the real world’. But rest assured, [...]
