Most cities all over the world have great quarters where vibrant cultures and especially sub and underground cultures thrive. German cities are no exception (in particular the former East German ones).

Ryan Spring posted on the Wooster Collective site the following: “I am holed up in abandoned buildings in Dresden Germany doing a project on the photos of Francesca Woodman, it is entirely impossible to match the intensity of her figure and composition with a 2 dollar spray can and a crappy digital but the abandoned spaces and their poetic make the attempt worthwhile. Here are some photos of day One where i managed to break into an old hotel on the railway, I have five more days of expanding on the Street dialogue for an exhibition here in Dresden at the Motorenhalle starting March 19th.”
