East Berlin and Potsdam 1990

What a great exciting time it has been 1989 – 1990 in Berlin when the wall had felt and it was possible to discover East Berlin and the areas around Berlin. It was a time to take photos of unique street scenes and to document the results from 40 years of socialism.

The houses in the East were grey and broken. The East Germans said: “What the second world war didn’t destroy, the communists did.”  Today these places disappeared with its fascination for every photographer. Enjoy some of the photos I have taken as a youngster.
