Theresa Marshall spent three years in Berlin from 1984-1987 in the Armed Forces and returned to witness and document, through an independent photographic study, the fall of the Berlin Wall. On November 9, 1989, the Wall came crashing down. Tearful and jubilant crowds gathered at all points of the Wall to celebrate the end of the Cold War. It left in its place immediate but not lasting chaos and joy, tears and turmoil, and years of social and political change. Through this 20th anniversary exhibit, Theresa shares with us images of a transforming city offering a historical visual as well as an intimate look at what her Berlin experiences meant to her personally.
Theresa Marshall graduated in 1991 with a degree in photography from the Media Department at Webster University. After graduation, she worked with a corporate photographer based in Philadelphia, Pa. During that time, she created tm photography and specialized in portraiture and stock photography. Life ultimately brought Theresa back to her hometown – St. Louis, Missouri. She continues to shoot professionally in and around the St. Louis area.
