Berlin Photo Diary 2014 – “I stole my sister’s boyfriend”


20140702-G16-8423

Sign of Goo. Shop for used design cloths at Oderbergerstrasse 45, Berlin

But what ‘Goo’ was originally? It was an album of Sonic Youth, an American alternative rock band, released 1990.

The drawing in the sign was the cover of the album, made by Raymond Pettibon. His inspiration was a photo of the witnesses in the case of the Moors murders serial killers, taken by unknown paparazzi 1966.

So, what we can see as a sign of a shop is a) a design based on b) an album cover using c) a drawing, which was based on d) a photograph in a magazine.

Efficient re-use of a photograph, isn’t it.
