Duke's summer course, Capturing the City: Documentary Photography in Berlin, pushed students to immerse themselves fully in one of Europe's most dynamic capital cities. They interpreted scenes of cultural life, public spaces, landscapes, and people. Project fieldwork sites included Tempelhof airfield-a Nazi-era airport made famous during the 1948-1949 Berlin Airlift and now used as a public park and reception center for refugees-as well as the U-Bahn, Berlin's subway system. Students also wrote fictional short stories based on vintage photographs purchased at Berlin flea markets and met with Berlin-based documentary photographers and writers.
