Rephotography: Same building, different times, different merchandise.
Corona vs. Kultur in Hamburg
Lately I have been experimenting with rephotography, the precise reproduction of an earlier photo’s perspective to illustrate the effects of passing time. Often, historical photographs are used as the basic material, but of course you can use any photos, even your own.
Shown here are photos of the Morris column advertising “Kultur in Hamburg” in Moorweidenstraße, one taken during the first winter of Corona in early 2021, the other taken in late summer of 2022. They illustrate the effect that the pandemic had on cultural activities in the city.
