As 2011 comes to a close we pick out our favourite images of the year
- Text by Satellite Voices
Make no mistake in the cutting edge avant garde nature and all out hustler mentality and fashion and music loving spirit of the Bavarian Capital. Munich's youth culture showcases a new aspect of German indviduality.
Satellite Voices Munich city editors Sylvia Weber, Christine Bierhals and Lea Rieck showcase their top three images of the year.
1. Alba Hamiti by Markus Burke
Markus Burke studied photography in Munich and soon developed a unique style that caught the attention of magazines like Neon and Zeit Magazin, for which he shot numerous portraits of young German artists. Furthermore, the versatile photographer also shoots fashion editorials and is responsible for some eye-catching record covers.
2. Hannibal's Munich Hobos
Three hobos hang around and wander through Munich’s Isar valley. They stumble from one day into another not knowing what tomorrow brings, just trusting in their well dressed looks. The guys wear the new summer collection of Munich’s notorious men’s label Hannibal.
3. Bob Beaman
When it was announced that Munich should get a new club a year ago, not everybody was delighted. The Munich mentality is a sceptical one. Will it work to break the old rules and not settle in the usual quarters but rather build on the extension of Prinzregenten Street, nestling close to the university quarter, where to be honest, good parties were very rare occasions? One year later and the club crew from Bob Beaman proved everyone wrong.
