Wim Wenders, Time capsules by the side of the road

Who is Wim Wenders?

Wim Wenders is a German photographer and filmmaker. Wenders photography emphasizes desolate landscapes.

What is the purpose of this series?

Several of the photographs in this series are previous photographs of Wenders which he has reshaped for this exhibition. These landscapes have long since changes, so in a way the photograph acts as a portal into that past place.

What I like about it

Large landscape photos of weird and unimportant things seen at the side of the road. By making these things the only thing in the shot, it creates an importance around it. Also the fact that it is the only point of focus in the photograph give it this value.

What can I use from it?

having a single focus in an image, to give the subject more importance.
