4REAL & TRUE2. WIM WENDERS. LANDSCAPES. PHOTOGRAPHS.
Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, Germany 2015
On the occasion of the artist’s 70th birthday in 2015, Museum Kunstpalast in collaboration with Wenders Images and the Wim Wenders Foundation is presenting a selection of about 80 large-scale photographs, which invariably are analogue creations, made without artificial lightning or tripod. The exhibits range from the artist’s early black-and-white photographs and monumental landscape panorama pictures through to his rarely shown photographs of „Ground Zero“ and new works that were made only last year.
Wenders regards his photographic work, in the truest sense of the word, as an interaction of light (phos) and painting (graphein), offering the scope for capturing a unique moment in time.
