Berlin now-and-then7. September 2012 by Mattes
inspired by the series of collages of the San Francisco Earth quake and today’s situation (Link here), I started looking on the Internet of old pictures of Berlin, mainly after the war.. My first couple of hours I found some good ones at http://www.koepenick.net/galerie-hist-berlin/index.htm.. (By integrating those in kind-of-an-art-project to build a new piece of art the copyrights will be tossed..)
Now I went to the places and retook those images about 60-80 years later from that very same position. It’s a littl like timetraveling.. especially seeing that trees on Warschauer straße planted maybe 80 years ago and beeing just small makes me think about it…
hop you enjoy those first pictures, that were mainly a test run..
