The fall of the Berlin wall
During the 20th anniversary of the fall of Berlin Wall, in 2009, I have celebrated the event with a photo series, focusing my attention on former DDR and Soviet places that were abandoned during the 90’s.
The Sunset is a trip in the recent history of Germany; these places have still their own life, they bear the sign of the time, but they are not noticed by anyone nowadays, perhaps to erase a painful past.
But people forget how many stories have gone by inside, and how many are still inside in these no one man land that silently keep on standing. Photographs are presented as dyptichs, to see how perspective and the significance of these places could change.
With or without the human presence.
