Berlin Wall, photographic montage
The Berlin Wall is often held up as an example of the worst of human behaviour toward others. However, the vestiges of this concrete scar on humanity erected to keep people apart today bring us closer together. The remaining fragments of the Wall symbolise the irrepressible desire for people to connect with others even when confronted with seemingly insurmountable obstacles. We are all right here, right now – it may sound cliché, but there is no better time or place to do some good for our world.
‘Inspiration Award’ in The Peace Project’s Make Peace campaign, 2012
