"...I take pictures, because they tell me who I am…" Berlin Umme Ecke is my current side project where I am working, mostly in color, to present my hometown from another viewpoint. I have lived in Berlin my entire life and have had a lot time to discover the many hidden spots of which people are not aware. In this new project, I try to show famous places from different angles and to support the city which I love. Simplicity, purity, order. These are the qualities Ronny Behnert is looking for in his subjects when he's out shooting. The award-winning black-and-white photographer does not only understand how to bring inanimate objects to life in his pictures; the Berliner's work also always transports a little mysticism and prudence. With his photography, Ronny Behnert has already won several prestigious awards: Winner photo for DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2014 in category BLACK AND WHITE supported by the magazine DigitalPHOTO; gold medal at the TRIERENBERG SUPER CIRCUIT 2014 in the category ARCHITECTURE & SIGHTS l ND AWARDS 2014; 1st place Gold Star Award in category ARCHITECTURE: BUILDINGS; BLACK AND WHITE SPIDER AWARDS 2013 Honorable Mention in abstract category l 3rd winner in VANGUARD photo competition 2012, category LONG EXPOSURES; as part of the award winning series DER KLEINE MENSCH that won 1st place at the BRENNPUNKT MAGAZINE photo competition 2012, BLACK AND WHITE category; 1st place in the national photo contest 2012, category HIGH KEY supported by DIGITALE FOTOGRAFIE photo magazine and FOTOCOMMUNITY.DE; and a SILVER AWARD in the photo contest 2010 of DVF (German Organisation for Photography), category NATURE.
