William Minke is an professional photographer and traveller currently based in Berlin, Germany. William studied photography at Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie, Berlin. For his project “End Of Crisis”, Minke decided to focus on cruise liner business. His native Germany holds the third largest market for cruises. Minke went on two cruises for the project: the first trip was around the Mediterranean sea for four days and the second was seven days in the Baltic sea.

The cruise liner business is thriving like never before.
Deep sea, the great outdoors, the journey to alien lands – all of this is not the dream’s fulfillment, this is not what money is saved and paid for. The appeal of a foreign city’s port has long since been surpassed by an on-board overture.
The liner and it’s countless entertainment facilities are the target of an journey. Relaxation, pleasure and treats in a moving temple of amusement. As a traveler one can leave behind every day life on 13 decks of roulette tables, Bingo and shopping malls. 24 hours of every day. It’s a fascinating coexisting world that gathers holidaymakers.
