About the Work

The bomb-damaged eastern wall of the pre-war Hotel Stuttgarter Hof runs alongside an urban wasteland, once the site of the most fashionable part of Berlin. On the far side of this wasteland runs the political wall. I photographed the scene on a bitterly cold February day from the Hotel. lt felt cold because I had to swing the windows almost off their hinges, allowing me to use them as mirrors in my panorama. I could thus reflect the east into the west and the west into the east.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
