Presentation by the artist on his website:

"By a series of fortunate events, Mark Power was present at the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
To mark the 25th anniversary, this new production (self-published under his new imprint, Globtik Books) is bound as a pastiche of a newspaper Power purchased in Berlin the morning after, embossed into heavy-duty cardboard.
 
While the early pages read as news-based photojournalism, as the book unfolds Power retreats away from the epicentre of the event to re-camp over the border in an almost desolate East Berlin. From there he views the story from another perspective, before embarking on a (frankly rather pointless) search for Bertolt Brecht’s grave.
 
The book is both a record of a major 20th century news event and a piece of critical soul-searching about the lessons learnt from the experience as, in the accompanying essay, Power recounts his fascinating tale of chance and choice."

Power, Mark

As a child, Mark Power (Born 1959, Harpenden, UK) discovered his father's home-made enlarger in the family attic, a contraption consisting of an upturned flowerpot, a domestic light bulb and a simple camera lens. His interest in photography probably began at this moment, though he later went to art college to study life-drawing and painting instead. Mark Power joined the Magnum Photos agency in 2002; he has published numerous photobooks, recently through his imprint Globtik Books and the project "Good Morning America" (5 volumes) with the British publisher GOST.
