»The Other Panorama«
For more than a century, panoramic photography was solely a technique for professionals, using precious cameras. Now every smartphone can catch panoramic views for free. A brief look at a tiny screen, then it fades into oblivion.
The panoramic views by Matthias Hagemann are different: analogue, rough and full of rhythm.
The b&w Rough Time Panorama looks at a fixed viewpoint, but in the foreground, bustling scenes tell a long story about people and time. Countless multiple exposures mingle into a new horizontal impression.
In contrast, the colorful 360° Spinner Panorama ignores straight horizontal lines and brings a new verve to well-known places.
The classical film perforation balances both types of moving horizontal scenes from China, Germany and other countries.
