On the Usefulness of Walls for Politics (4)

Heinersdorf, East/West German Border, 1987 © Brian Rose

In 1985 or so Brian Rose began to document the "Iron Curtain" that divided East and West Germany. Eventually, of course, that border ceased to have any official status. But he continued to document the border after the demise of Communism in 1989. The results are in his book project The Lost Border. We could do with a few more disappearing walls and curtains and fences.

This is one of my all time favorite photo books- I hope there's an even better one being chronicled right now on the demise of the West Bank Wall.
