City Diary - Porto, Portugal ( analog/film photography )


[ City Diaries ] - Working on my long time project "City Diaries". Utilising analog and digital capture and postprocessing techniques to find creative solutions for my goal to investigate the urban spaces of modern european cities. Cities are complex constructions in space  and time ( history, memory ). The Cities which I have already investigated or I am still investigating are: Athens, Berlin, Hamburg, Kiev,  Lisbon, Porto. Some more are soon to come ... here some snapshots on work done on Lisbon and Porto ( Portugal ). 

[ DE ] Städte-Tagebücher - Die Auseinandersetzungen mit Orten und Städten. Durch den Einsatz verschiedene technischen Aufnahmemedien wie analoge und digitale Kameras werden Ansichten der Städte aufgezeichnet und gespeichert ( für die Zukunft aufbewahrt ). Hier sollen die Geschichten der Häuser, der Straßen, des Ortes eingefangen und aufgezeichnet werden. Das Projekt thematisiert, wie durch verschiedene Medien Erinnerung gespeichert und wieder erweck werden kann.

Leit-Begriffe: Erinnerung ( Mnemosyne ), Geschichte, Erinnerungsräume, kulturelles Gedächtnis.

City Diary - Porto Portugal ( analog photography )

From a travel to Porto, Portugal in March 2014. About one in every five buildings in central Porto is abandoned and derelict at the moment. Most pictures shot on film with analog cameras ( Nikon FM2, Plaubel Makina 67 ).

I started to put a kind of order in those images with the purpose to tell  a kind  of story or to make a "picture of the city" ...
