Uwa Scholz, better known as @uwa2000, quickly became one of Germany’s most followed travel photography accounts. On it, she documents her impressions of Berlin, Germany, and the world. Uwa grew up in Berlin, and although she took photography classes in high school, she considers herself an autodidact – gleaning most of her knowledge from reading. Uwa spends several months a year traveling – she’s lived from her Instagram photography since 2015.
Uwa will join us on stage at the Berlin Travel Night #02 on Tuesday, October 16 at The Reed in Berlin-Mitte, to talk about her work as an Instagram photographer, what it’s like to have, and keep, so many followers, and how she finds her motifs. We asked her a few basics before Berlin Travel Night to keep you inspired.
