Ferropolis – from industrial to cultural, new material added

Melt Festival 2018, Ferropolis, Germany, 13.07.-15.07.2018There are 20 years between these collection of Polaroids. Ferropolis (located in Saxony-Anhalt, close to Dessau) still under construction in 1998 (below) and during the Melt Festival in July 2018. The material is part of my long-term photographic observation of a region which was once the biggest industrial area in East Germany. However, I didn’t worked with Polaroid since a long time and it just felt appropriate to use the same technology, consequently the same visual language than 20 years ago.
