Mannheim in a Nutshell



Mannheim in a nutshell is a kind of souvenir made by me. “In a nutshell” is an expression that is often used in the Netherlands. It means: in short, something compact. I decided to take it literally. There is something inside the nutshell: something of utmost importance. And one needs to crack the nut open to get to the core. The nutshell here has a little photo book depicting places in Mannheim. The Neckar flows through the entire little book, just like it flows through the city.
