Death|s|trip

Deathstrip is a story of human mortality written on the landscape. In looking at present day Berlin through the filter of history, these image and text pieces reveal some of the consequences of enforced political borders. Focusing on the victims of the Berlin Wall - those who love their lives in failed attempts to flee from one side to the other - Deathstrip probes the contingent properties of meaning, memory and reflection in relation to both the landscape adn the photographic image. This submission is a selection from the series, which is a work in progress. Each photograph was made on the date that coincides with the anniversary of the victim's death, sited in the specific location where the event took place. Between 1961-1989 136 individuals died as a direct result of the Wall.
