A father and his son from West Berlin look into East Berlin through an opening in the wall in #Berlin, #Germany, 1989.
The final months of 1989 were some of the most momentous and hope-filled since the end of the Second World War, but until it happened, we couldn't imagine that the Berlin Wall would actually fall when it did.
I was there when the celebrations were televised live worldwide, as people danced and celebrated on the hated wall.
One week later, I was in the former Czechoslovakia to photograph the massive demonstrations during what came to be called the Velvet Revolution.

#Kabul, #Afghanistan, 1995. Lying between two hills next to the Kabul River, the Kabul zoo was often on the front lines during the civil war in the 1990's. Many animals were killed during the shelling or starved to death when there was little interest in preserving the unique animals and plants native to Afghanistan. This fighter with his weapon sits on a preserved tiger, thought to have been one of the zoo's collection.
Today, the zoo is usually an island of peace in a chaotic city which is criss-crossed by blast walls, razor wire, and strangled by traffic jams.
