Hiromi TSUCHIDA, photographer. "The Berlin Wall." Japan: Media Factory, 2001, First Edition, HB, dj, 22 cm x 30 cm, 50 color images, text in English and Japanese.

"This is not the book one might expect. Rather than showing the wall the pictures show the sites that were once divided by the wall. Each image carries half-transparent inscriptions 'west' and 'east' to mark the respective side of the non-existent wall and in most instances one is surprised by the homogeneity of the location. It documents Berlin growing together."--Maggs
