A visual diary by the
D R M crew
in the subway
Only Ruzd can judge us.
We advanced to everyday life. Leisure time - now a precious good. Family, kids, work life, personal preferences, quarrels amongst each other - all these factors partially reduced our contacts inside the crew to an annual birthday wish: I am thinking of you. Still, what the others were doing was always in the back of my head.
What brought us together in our youth still exists. Each one to himself, active according to capacity and location. Our paths crossed sometimes more, sometimes less, for collective excursions here and there.
Our motivation - railway adventures.
Out of the blue, the DRM unlock the hatch of an emergency exit and take us into the vast subterrane of Berlin. An otherwise secluded world unfolds - dark and dusty concrete caves where time seems to stand still. Exclusive, atmospheric shots from the subway tunnels, all taken between 2016 and 2020, fill the void. Depicting Recent Memories is about hardships and friendships after years in the game.
Berlin heavyweights Acid79, Micro, Shus, Area, Mad and Edward Nightingale unveil their diaries, almost perpetuating the sensation of a moist t-shirt on your face from a makeshift mask when the next traffic is passing by. Meticulously painted graffiti with attention to detail is reflected in the choice of materials, all devotedly designed by Deutsche und Japaner.
Opening a hatch has never been easier!
