As 2014 marks the 25th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, architectural photographer Paul Raftery unveils his latest project 'Berlin Voids' – a documentation of the powerful spaces that have emerged since the wall was breached by East German protesters in November 1989.
Raftery's evocative photographs focus as much on what is not there as they do on what is. As an established architectural photographer and artist, his skill is evident as the intriguingly beautiful compositions encompass the extremes between the radically altered urban renovation of Potsdammer Platz to the scarcely changed rural areas of Hennigsdorf. The physical landscape captured as it traverses a 100 mile path around the city, never forgetting the difficult history the spaces represent.
