The corpses are unavoidable. Often with backs jarring open and guts exposed in a burst of anodes and cooper coils, the sad, neglected remains of discarded Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) TVs are a vastly growing presence on Berlin's streetscape. For the first time, the victims speak, to the camera of photographer Gerrit Sievert.

Sievert began to track Berlin's homeless TVs about a year ago. "There's just something so sad about it, like when people are all excited about a new puppy, and then throw them on the street when they go on vacation," he says. He comes across more and more CRTs each day.
