Photographer Stefan Koppelkamm first photographed East Germany in 1990 after the fall of the Berlin Wall but before the reunification. He revisited the same locations a decade later, and rephotographed them from exactly the same viewpoints to document the drastic social and economic transformations that came about during the time between the photos.

The project is called Ortszeit Local Time. Spielgel Online has an interesting article about the work.

I remember the first time I went to Berlin.

It was 1981. I was in the Air Force.

The pilot announced that we were entering Berlin, prepare for landing.

I looked out the window. I was absolutely shocked. An old, barron city. No cars, no pedestrians, no nothing. I didn't quit get it.

Then we flew over the Wall and we saw this magnificent, bustling city.

The contrast was indescribable.

I went to Berlin several times in the 1980s and 1990s.

I was last in Berlin in 2000. East Berlin became the hip part of the city, because rents were cheap in the old, bland communist buildings, so young artists, entrepreneurs, and others set up shop there. The buildings were no longer painted grey. The made up for architectural style by painting the buildings, bright, bold colors.

The transformation that took place between 1989 and 2000 was truly amazing.

People's self interests always beat gooberment central planning.

I bet that it was quite a thing to see and live!
