Photo exhibition "Nuevas Perspectivas" | Picture No. 8
Unfortunately my exhibition at the Denkbar in Frankfurt was cancelled. Also the processions at Semana Santa in Spain will not take place because of the Corona crisis. A total failure of Semana Santa had last occurred in 1933. At that time political unrest was the cause.
But now you can enjoy a daily picture of my exhibition virtually on the net ;)
Exhibition: 26.03. - 25.04.2020 - Virtual
Photography: Hans Keller
Information at: blog.hanskeller.com
Locations Semana Santa: San Fernando/España
Accompany the Frankfurt photographer Hans Keller on an extraordinary adventure trip and walk with him on the traces of the unique Semana Santa in San Fernando/Andalusia. A collection of precious snapshots and rare insights in front of and behind the scenes of the procession awaits you - photos of impressive intensity and intimacy.
Immerse yourself in a fantastic symbiosis of tradition, faith, devotion and euphoria…
Semana Santa is a feast for the eyes, a visual delight. The beautiful costumes, the wonderful music, the Saeta. But then I was more and more fascinated by the idea of Semana Santa:
The deep faith, the spirituality, the will to humility and penance impressed me deeply.
So I tried to photograph with the heart!
Fortunately I got to know some Cargadores (bearers of the Pasos) before.
That's when the idea was born to document Semana Santa from the inside, so to speak.
During Semana Santa I took 5414 photos in total. I am in love with all motives.
And as you can imagine, I found the selection very, very difficult. I even reduced the format of the photos to be able to show more photos. This resulted in 62 pictures or 31 photo pairs.
They should not only be a documentation of a very special experience for me. The comparison of two photos creates a completely new artistic field of tension.
From what is often seen emerge "Nuevas Perspectivas".
