PHOTOJOURNALISM GALLERIES IN BERLIN, GERMANY

Greetings,

I am looking for galleries which feature photojournalism work in Berlin, Germany. My Collective [ W I R ] is looking to have a group show on humanitarian and political crisis around the world in 2007- 2008. Formats are both photo and video. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate any feed back or recommendations that you may have. Thank you in advance.
