Welle (wave)

Hamburg. Harbour. People. – Water.

A kinetic photographic installation: over 75 portraits of traders, captains, passers-by, workers and tourists throughout Hamburg harbour, suspended on fine wires, fill a whole room. The photographs gently swing above the viewer, at head height and near the ground – together, as a whole, they form a wave.

There are two photographs of each person. One focuses on the person. The second photograph turns this focus around: the person is blurred and the outside world behind them is in sharp focus.
