The fall of the Berlin wall

“Having decided to photograph West Berlin in 1979, Stéphane Duroy also wanted to understand Germany, the country that gave birth to Nazism, a unique phenomenon in History, generated by such a civilized nation. In 1989, ten years later, he took pictures of the fall of the Berlin wall. This year we commemorate the twentieth anniversary of this event. Stéphane Duroy, tracing history, asks how one lives in the present with knowledge of the past, and how does one mourn an event which will not occur again? This is what photography is, the elusive desire to hold back time.”

The book _Berlin_ is published by Filigranes Editions, 2009
