From ravers sucking spaghetti off one another, to live alpacas strutting around the club—there's hardly a part of Berlin nightlife that Jesús Pastor hasn't caught on camera. Over the past seven years, the photographer has roamed Berlin's most hedonistic parties to document its "animals of the night," as he likes to call them. "In Berlin, people are really awake at night," he tells me.
Pastor started in 2010, by capturing the hazy after parties of the Berlin International Film Festival. Soon, his reputation got him and his camera access to the kind of events that traditionally ban photography—like parties in the King Size Bar (famously tiny and hard to get in) or the House of Red Doors at the Wilde Renate nightclub, which its organizers describe using the key words "sex, hedonism, escapism, and exuberance."
Jesús Pastor's latest series, Wild Wolves, brings together his best photos showcasing the hedonistic glory of Berlin after dark. He tells me that what he likes about Berlin nights is that people there have almost no taboos. "You can smell the freedom from every corner," he says.
