Default Cross the line (point of view)


one of my favorite places to make photos is a museum or an exhibition. Not mainly to document the objects but the interferences visitors-exhibition-interior-architecture.

This is part of a series done at Wienmuseum (Vienna) during the actual exhibtion dedicated to Robert Haas, a famous photographer.
His personal life was written on orange-red informationboards running through the first two halls.
In combination with the well polished old surface of the floor "crossing the line" makes the world upside down in a very special way ...

greetings from a hill

Well, Wolfgang,

You have hit on something that fascinates me too, the behavior of folk in exhibitions.

The reflections in the polished floor support your story very well. I would have enjoyed your photographic essay even without the words, but your generous sharing of a commentary makes our visit so much more sympathetic with your own personal experience. Instead of merely looking through a window at what you saw, we get to walk with you with your arm sound our shoulders, sharing it all with us!
