Berlin Wall - East Side,Germany,1990.

Philip Enticknap tells a remarkable story below about this image.

" In September 1990 I visited Berlin on an assignment. I took this shot of an elderly woman looking westwards from the east side. I experienced an atmosphere of trepidation by the East Berliners. Shortly after taking this shot I stooped down to a small boy dressed in a heavy overcoat and Cossack style hat who was selling chunks of the wall for souvenirs. He spat at me, undeterred as his saliva ran down my face I spoke to him reassuringly in English , with tears running down his face he stretched out his hand to shake mine."
