On April 25 the local EyeEm Berlin community gathered at the EyeEm courtyard to stroll through the city and capture the works of JR on the streets. With more than 50 people taking photos together this was our biggest photo walk so far.

The lowdown

What: French street artist JR visited Berlin and pasted some of his larger-than-life murals on the walls. As long time fans of his work we hosted an EyeEm Meetup to visit some of the artworks and take photos together in a relaxed atmosphere.

When: April 25, 2013

Who: photography & street art lovers from near and far

Where: through Berlin Mitte, finishing up at Weinbergspark with some cold beer

The story:

It all started in the courtyard of the EyeEm Studio. Everyone received a name badge and the route we’re going to take to spot as many JRs as possible. As soon as we started out we realized: wow, this group is big. It takes a while when 50 people cross the streets and take photos at the same time.

Arriving at the first mural was really impressive. Besides everyone getting really creative with snapping photos using all kinds of devices (from tablets to phones to DSLR and analog cameras) the dimension of JR’s artwork was immense. Thanks to Stephanie climbing the shoulders of Matias we even managed to take a photo of the whole group.

After around 90 minutes of shooting around town the photo walk ended at Weinbergspark in the centre of Berlin. Lorenz organized some cold beer and a honorable jury was formed to pick the best photos taken during the walk.

Thank you everyone for coming! We’re looking forward to the next EyeEm Meetup in Berlin♥
