    The scar (Berlin, 1990-2004)
    To what extent can photography go hand in hand with History?
    In a search to find remnants of the Berlin Wall, one realises that our collective memory still permeates a few stigmas and other marks left behind. One looks for details and testimonies fossilised in time. What has become of those surveillance zones which were once under tight security? Those No Man’s Lands which were cut off, caught between two worlds, concrete bound? A real memory part of a past epoch has forever inscribed our present-day society. Through an age-long span of observation, one’s vision records everyday life in which the most commonplace aspects of our lives have become a natural part of the urbanisation of cities. We are now faced with a line cutting across history, and because it has changed with the patina of time, it is no longer seen.
    A ghost reigns over the memory of mankind like a scar.
