Matthias Koeppel: "That's how it looked" - 25 years later
| Galerie Carlos Hulsch
25 years ago it was the expectations of the reconstruction and new construction of Berlin that led to the creation of the photo series "That's how it looked". The photographer used a strictly disciplined self-timer method to create an objective series over this period of time.
The shots were taken with a Hasselblad camera on a tripod, and the photographer had eight seconds after the shutter was released to take the pre-determined position in the subject.
A b/w negative roll film with ASA 100 was used for the photographs.
The images were taken over a period of about five years (circa 1998-2003).
Particularly noteworthy is the use of the self-timer technique, which can be considered an early form of today's selfie.
