Hamburg’s most depressing pubs

Walking into a foreign backstreet bar without as much of a hint of its native language under your belt is pretty brave. Bringing your camera along to capture its locals? Even more so. That’s the situation Finnish photographer Henrik Malmström found himself in upon stumbling across der Kleine-Kiez, St. Georg – Hamburg’s smaller red light district and, in contrast, home to the city’s largest concentration of mosques.” – via dazed

Hi, I am an art director based in Berlin, Germany. I'm always searching for visual stunning or conceptually interesting pieces of art.

    screw you!

    This is not depressing at all. I was expecting some douchebag club playing Avicii and everybody wearing primark or h&m.

    All these people in the pictures seem to genuinely enjoy themselves.

    And I am pretty sure Henrik never called these placed depressing.
    Just because he is finnish doesn’t mean everything is depressing to him.

    Hi Janis, thanks for your feedback!

    Please don’t take the title too serious. I’d also find some douchbag club more depressing and would rather drink my beer at this bar in St. Georg ;)
