The Wall

In The Wall, a section of the Berlin Wall was photographed in a small public park in NYC. The wall is a symbol of a divided and violent past but it is also art and was part of the urban landscape. My photograph of the wall has been added to the Namibian landscape where it blocks a giraffe’s centuries-old path. It is once again a concrete symbol of division as Namibians struggle with land redistribution policies after years of German colonization. (The wall is no longer in the NYC park.)
