Artist's description:

Abandoned place in Europe.

The town of Wünsdorf was once the largest military base in Europe. The town was the headquarters of the Soviet forces in communist East Germany and had a population of 60,000 people, 50,000 of whom where soldiers. When the Soviet army left in 1994 the population dropped to just 6,000.

The town’s history as a military base dates back to before World War one. It was the headquarters of the High Command of the Germany army during World War II, and was a garrison town long before the Soviets moved in.

Wünsdorf was a closed town during the time it was occupied by the Soviet forces, and effectively became a Soviet town in the heart of Germany. A daily delivery via a direct rail link from Moscow allowed the town to isolate itself from the surrounding areas, having its own shops, theatre, leisure facilities and hospital.

I accept reasonable offers for any of the work seen in my gallery. I also offer larger/smaller sizes if required, please ask.

All prints are lovingly produced on Fuji DP II paper which is fade resistant and yields high-image-quality digital prints. This paper offers excellent tones, sharpness and image quality.

Feedback on prints sold to date have been positive and customers have been happy with the work produced by the professional printers used to directly supply my work to those who are regular collectors.

Any questions please ask and I will provide an answer to you promptly.
