Looking Around

“Photographer Simon Hoegsberg’s 100 meter-wide photograph capturing one-hundred seventy-eight people, all shot in the course of twenty days from the same spot on a railroad bridge on Warschauer Strasses in Berlin in the summer of 2007. Aside from being technically stunning, it’s also an understated narrative triumph: every figure in this image, silhouetted starkly and brilliantly against a neutral sky, tells through his or her particular facial expressions and body language a distinctive and thoroughly original story all their own.” –  As described on NYTimes.com’s Design Director, Khoi Vinh's blog, Subtraction.
