A PHOTOGRAPHIC REQUIEM FOR THE FORMER NSA FIELD STATION BERLIN
by David Kregenow
For more than thirty years, the listening point atop of the Teufelsberg Hill, was at the front line of Cold War spying activities and at the peak of technological development - the very first email in Europe was sent from there.
For the last twenty years, the site was left to natural erosion and human vandalism. Today it is a bleak group of ruins which bears witness to the recent past as well as to ignorance.
David Kregenow is an accomplished architectural and industrial photographer and a former student of Folkwang school. After several years in France and Italy, he currently lives and works in Berlin and focuses on portraying his favorite photographers.
