Berlin - a city without walls. Pictures of Piotr Skórnicki on the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall

There were no observation towers, anti-tank dams, live fences, death belts, dogs and guards. There was also a crowd who greeted the new reality in euphoria in the fall of 1989. Instead, it was the everyday life of a vibrant, multicultural, four-million city.

I photograph what interests me. The death zone - a strip of land between non-existent walls - inspired me for the next three years. I wanted to feel her presence. It was a difficult task. I was moving around the territory which for years lost its previous, gloomy character. Imagination told me images from the past, and I juxtaposed them with reality. I stopped and recorded these moments in pictures.

A collection of about 30 photographs was created. His creation was for me a very important experience and became one of those that shapes the perception of the surrounding world.
