Remembering 30 years of the Berlin wall

30 years ago this month I was in Berlin covering the fall of the Berlin wall.  Then aged 25 years old I got on the first plane I could book and spent the next few days documenting the city both sides of the wall.  Photographing the stark contrasts between the East and the West.

I remember how cold and grey the city was as I passed between the old Check point Charlie and the new openings in the wall.  days before if you had approached the wall from the East side you stood a good chance of being shot.  New graffitti only days old had started to appear on the East side as boarder guards just stood and watched.

I have a gallery of pictures on my website under projects.

Not long after that trip I moved to Gloucestershire where I continue to work in editorial PR and portraiture photography.
