This is the first piece of a series I decided to dedicate to a certain group of people who are characteristic of the Ruhrgebiet (Germany) – I am talking about shopmen who run a so called “Kiosk”, “Bude” or “Trinkhalle”.
These places are far more than just a newspaper kiosk; it is more a solid root of social life, as the neighbourhood meets there.
Those places do not have a sophisticated interior decoration – none of them. But they are all different. You can feel this difference in the first moment you enter such a place comparing it to the one you have visited before.
The difference makes the person behind the counter – it´s this person´s personaltiy turning this shop in to a very special place; it is actually no wonder as some of those shops have a direct connection to the flat of the shopowner. They have a hard job, opening at 5:00 am and closing sometimes at 1:00 am, running their tough business 7 days a week.

Above you see Juri, who started with just two cookingplates he used to prepare meatballs – they are delicious!

    First rate shot – and it’s wonderful that you took the time to give us such comprehensive background information in the sidebar! It’s fascinating and imo adds immeasurably to the appeal of the piece. Such commentaries, which give one insight into the social milieu of distant places nearly always elevate the art’s intrinsic artistic merit. Fantastic image and narrative!

  • Thank you very much for both comment and fav – if you like it that much, you should check out the rest of the series, which is online
