Check This Out - Simon Hoegsburg

Part of "We Are All Going to Die" by photographer Simon Hoegsburg

Friend and fellow photographer, William Dunniway sent me this link. I am glad I opened it. It gives you a virtual experience of viewing a 100 meter long photograph of 178 people, taken over 20 days, at the same spot on a railroad bridge in Berlin during the summer of 2007. Most people were unaware that they were being photographed. And the people who were aware are quite interesting. I can't say I have ever viewed an image of people in quite this way and it is very powerful. As are many of the images in the rest of Hoegsburg's galleries. I especially like the Thought Project.
