We're All Gonna Die

despite its gloomy name, this is one of the most beautiful photography projects i've seen in a long time. (thanks for the tweet gusa!) it's called "we're all gonna die - 100 meters of existence" by simon hoegsberg. there are 128 people in this panoramic 100m x 78cm film strip shot over the course of 20 days from the same spot on a railroad bridge in Warschauer Strasse in Berlin in the summer of 07.

each day our lives seem to get busier and busier and we miss the opportunity to just stop and look around to watch other people, be in the moment, witness love, pain (matching eye patches, really?), humor, and truth. i love how from the same spot he can see people old and young, homeless and wealthy, happy and sad, alone and together - and i love thinking about where these people are leaving from or headed to. i mean who carries a pool noodle anymore?

definitely worth a look. check out his other projects here.
