In early 2001 Markus Bollen began photographing the new government and embassy buildings in Berlin.

The Chich Architecture, the symbols of power alongside the Spree is his theme.

Just as he had set up his large format camera in the Ministry of Foreign Affair on September 11th 2001, the attack on the World Trade Centre in New York happened. All permissions given to this point were withdrawn for two years. Not until 2003 he could continue his work.

Timeless pictures of architecture that has had an eventful history were created.

For example the Ministry of Foreign Affair was the Building of the Reichsbank in the Third Reich, in DDR times, the Ministry of Finances and later the central committee of the SED were located here.
