Repost: One Portrait a Day

The Piano Man
I was out exploring my neighbourhood the other day - as I often do. I looked through some windows and came across this workshop by Südstern, Berlin; it was full of pianos taken apart. I really like workshops and instantly felt that I wanted to photograph the place. I approached them and made an appointment to pop around today. Michael Bissinger owns the place and tunes pianos by ear. Just him, the piano and a couple of tools. Amazing! I asked him if he had a lighter shirt, but apparently his jumper costs €400 so it had to do.
