Pictures from the Surface of the Earth
Exhibition Catalogue - Schirmer/Mosel, Munich 2001
Wim Wenders has for years carried around an old panoramic camera that has come in handy when the extent or impressive nature of experience is beyond normal measure. And with as passionate a keen-sighted person as Wenders, that is frequently the case: landscapes stretch into infinity, horizons divide the world into water, earth and air, deserts and mountain ranges are overwhelming in their emptiness and silence, street fronts, whether in Havana, Houston, Texas or Berlin, draw our gaze to the very depths of civilization or to the abyss of horror and destruction as at Ground Zero shortly after September 11, 2001.
