Description

After “0/1 Data Flow” (2004), “Global Soul” (2008) and “The Third Day” (2013), Henrik Spohler’s new photographic project “In Between” is the fourth part of a series on modern traffic of data and goods. “In essence”, says Spohler in conversation with author and curator Peter Lindhorst on the occasion of the presentation of the work during the last Triennial of Photography in Hamburg, “it is about the almost absurd omnipresence of goods – as a sign of globalization. If you order a pair of slippers online today, you will find them on your doorstep tomorrow, no matter whether they were made in Taiwan or South Tyrol. Goods, raw material and industrial products are available almost everywhere and at any time. World-wide logistics have become the backbone of business. The project investigates places of transit. Interfaces of logistics such as ports and freight airports or facilities that have formed along trade routes. Areas corresponding only to economic needs, void of any reference to place, continent or country. The photographs show the backside of industrial production and economic activity, seemingly fictional images of nameless places.”

Henrik Spohler, born 1965, studied at Folkwang School in Essen, has been working as a freelance photographer in Hamburg since 1993 and teaches as a professor at the Berlin School of Technology and Economics. Spohler’s work is found in important collections, both public and private. The book to the series “In Between” has been published by Hartmann project.
