"Beijing and Berlin, East and West – Since I have been living in each of these two cities for many years, the photographs I have collected have become my twin arsenal of visual recollections of The Big City. During my stay in either, any sight invokes a vivid evocation of the other. My memories consist of people, faces, cityscapes and much more. All of these are somehow integrated into a visual bundle. I hope, through my pairings, I am able to convey some of my stories from these capital cities. Maybe I might even be able to revive some of the viewer's own experience with these two – or with YOUR own big city." - Georg Jansen

Born in West Germany, Georg Jansen studied philosophy, German literature and musicology in Bonn, Berlin and Lisbon. He worked as an architecture photographer in various Asian countries for a German agency. His photographs have been shown in Lisbon, Passau, Brüggen and Beijing. Apart from his artistic work, he was a teacher of literature in Beijing, Lisbon, Göttingen and Berlin.
