Memory

"I was born in Berlin and watched the Wall being built from my classroom in the district of Wedding. I found it quite remarkable that the GDR, the German 'Democratic!' Republic, held its first democratic elections on 18 March 1990 only to dissolve itself shortly afterwards. In the run-up to the election, I spent nearly every weekend from January to March 1990 touring the area around Berlin with my family, and taking photographs of the election campaign, posters, and everything else that had to do with the elections."
