Valentin Cheli

I used to wander through the city looking for a certain color to match another one. In winter, i sometimes walked kilometers without finding a car, a surface or a plant that responded to my ideas. As i got more and more obsessed by colors and by certain combinations of textures, people and places, i started to interfere with them to create the pictures i had in mind. This was when Berlin became my home, after five years of living here, as now i would never have to leave again.

Valentin is an Art Director and Photographer from Zürich, Switzerland. He lives and works in Berlin where he build up a boutique design studio called the kids and from where he realizes his photographic projects. His first photographic book was launched in March 2021, and is called « Sommer in Berlin“. It reflects his journey through the colorless Berlin winters.
