Berlin Inspiration: The LUX & ASA Story

In October 2018 the Space for Arts team spent the better part of a week in Berlin introducing SfA to the local market. During the course of the team’s stay a number of Berlin photo studios were visited. The team was fascinated by the story of Lux & Asa, in the Lichtenberg neighborhood of Berlin, as told to them by co-founder Jan Kraus.
