From Musa, Germany, November 2017

Musa, Berlin, Germany

I am a poet, journalist and musician living in Berlin, where I have been since October 2014. The city, and increasingly the country - which I have travelled around more and more in recent months - has been an incredible source of creativity, and I hope to stay here for a long while yet. This is a photo of my local football team, SFC Friedrichshain Internazionale, in 2016; in this picture, we'd just won a penalty shoot-out to be promoted to the city's top amateur league. The club is truly diverse; its 25 squad members are drawn from 14 different nationalities, and its founding charter speaks out against homophobia, racism, sexism and fascism.
