People who have saved this event:



While travelling through East Germany in 1990 — after the fall of the Berlin wall but before re-unification — Stefan Koppelkamm felt the urge to capture in photographs a reality which he assumed would soon disappear for ever. The houses, streets and squares which he photographed often gave the impression that time had stopped, frequently conveying a sense of how Germany might have looked before the Second World War. Ten or twelve years later, the photographer sought out each location again and took a second photograph from exactly the same standpoint. The pairs of photographs which were created in this way document the deep-seated changes which had occurred in many of these places over the intervening years.
