Raymond Depardon – Berlin
Fragments of a German Story
Beginning his career as a foreign correspondent, Raymond Depardon has since established himself as a major artist through his books, exhibitions and films.
Between 1961 and 2013, he frequently photographed the constantly changing rhythm of Berlin which is the focus of this book. Here Depardon is witness to the construction of the Berlin Wall, the arrival of famous visitors like Robert Kennedy and Queen Elisabeth, the Tunix congress, the fall of the Wall, and the reconstruction of two sides of an abandoned frontier which never really disappeared.
Finally Depardon depicts contemporary Berlin, a fractured and fascinating city of memorials, eclecticism and self-realization.
