In 2009, I was chosen to participate in the Berlin Wall Project (ny2dance.com/projects/view/Berlin-Wall/media), sponsored by the Goethe Institute, New York City, and the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Since then I have been working on the gradual disappearance of The Berlin Wall. In 2013 a second part of 'Relics of The Berlin Wall' was published. A small essay of 11 photographs mostly taken and published for the first time in 2013 of that work won first place in the international news story category in the prestige White House News Photographers Association's annual 'Eyes of History' competition this year (whnpa.org/contests/still-contest/2014-eyes-of-history/2014-eyes-of-history-still-contest-picture-story-international/).
