This year I am excited to be working as a monthly contributor to Twelve, a project that asks a small group of photographers to interpret a new theme each month. The creator of Twelve is Heather Zweig. You can see a list of all contributors here!

For January’s theme of celebration, I headed over to the reliably off the hook Christmas market near the Alexanderplatz in Berlin. Here young and old celebrate the holiday season with an interesting combination of ferris wheels and roller coasters, lots of lights, blaring German music, heart-shaped cookies, and mulled wine fortified with the shot of your choice.
