east and west

Which world do you see if you turn around your own axis  180 degrees? Is it a completely new one? Or just another image of the already seen?


One place, that raises this question like no other is the German capital Berlin. How did the cityscape change after the fall of the Berlin Wall 25+ years ago? Are there any differences between east and west or do both areas resemble each other? Can one differentiate between east and west today?


The photo series East and West shows image pairs that were made along the former Berlin Wall. The left photo shows the view of Berlin to the west of the Wall, the right one eastwards.
