"I first got curious about Stralsund because I saw an old postcard from the days of the GDR. And what I always notice about images from that era is that everything is very poor, very sparse, and you can always see that the cities were very sparsely lit. But I kind of like it that East Germany was under-lit. It’s not necessarily nostalgic; it’s simply what struck me about it."
