We’re All Going to Die

What’s this?

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. One of those few photographs that I not only admire but wish that I’d taken myself.
