His witty book of carefully thought-out and impish self-portraits alongside personalities had an unforeseen effect. He became a known German personality himself, soon amassing TV-invitations galore. The book was hugely successful, and André being a creatively restless spirit decided to make a 360-degree turn. Instead of focusing on the well known, he decided to take what he calls ‘accidental’ black and white pictures of himself next to Berlin’s unknown club creatures. His almost obsessive pursuit of Berlin nightlife lasted ten years. Although André claims that chance alone allowed his pictures to happen, the images nevertheless are cohesive in vision and together form an authoritative account of nighttime Berlin.
