The Lost Border
The Landscape of The Iron Curtain
For almost half a century, the Iron Curtain divided the nations of Europe. Then, almost overnight, it vanished. During the 1980s, the photographer Brian Rose followed its course, before going on to record its disappearance. His images capture the eerie concrete and barbed-wire barriers running through mundane towns and villages, the tumultuous scenes as the Berlin Wall came down, and the ghostly traces that are all that remain today.
