"When the Wall came down, I was in charge of a day-care centre. With one of the teachers and a group of children, who had formed a photography group, I was out and about in Berlin a lot. These pictures were taken by the children with very simple, cheap cameras but a great amount of enthusiasm. They were all taken in Kreuzberg and the children developed the films at our centre, with my former colleague’s help. At some point I stored them away in my archives."
