Close Up! – Young photographers at the Berlinale 2014

In the "Close Up!" project by C/O Berlin and the Berlinale, 13 young photographers aged 20 to 25 were invited to show what they can do – and what they see. A very personal view of the festival's glamour and daily routine was what counts.


The participants in 2014 were: Simon Becker, Xiomara Bender, Susanne Erler, Carina Feneis, Dominik Fleischmann, Svetlana Goldstein, Sabine Kelka, Przemyslaw Nieciecki, Christin Raubuch, Christian Sarges, Jasmin Scherer, Milena von Bruchhausen and Karol Wysmyk
