Publisher's Description
Photographer Dirk Alvermann has always been curious about people and their occasionally strange habits. For decades he observed them with his camera and only relied on his perception. In this subjective but unprejudiced way, any place in his photographs became a setting of social interaction at which he only had to point the camera. Nothing is staged in his images, 'the world is by itself as it appears'. For this volume, Alvermann has once again scoured his extensive photo archive and compiled another four of his filmlike image series. He is not so much concerned about the individual shots as their sequence and their relation to each other, the filmic montage of the material. The result is a visual essay encompassing Alvermann's entire photographic work: From the Polish sympathetic strikes in favour of the upheavals in Hungary in 1956, the Dusseldorf Carnival and Spanish Good Friday processions to the photographer's private surroundings.
