Photographer's Note

between east and west
between history and a future
between old and new
between different kinds of freedom

berlin, now and always
at the crossroads


This picture was shot in central Berlin, on the corner of Under Den Linden and the Oberwallstrasse.

The tower in the background is the Alexanderplatz television tower (formerly an icon of East Germany).
The main building in the picture is the German hisotry museum. It proudly proclaims: we are one people.

But there's a mish mash of traffic signs,
too much communication obstructing our view,
and the road ahead seems blocked,
but only temporarily.
