Notes and Editorial Reviews

A film by Jan Schmidt-Garre

Andreas Gursky (born 1955) is one of the most successful contemporary photographers in the world. For two years, filmmaker Jan Schmidt-Garre accompanied the photographer in the creation of “Hamm, Bergwerk Ost”. From the first viewings of the motive to actually taking the photographs and then digitally processing the final image, he traces the course of the photograph to its final destination in the collection of the Ukrainian collector Victor Pinchuk. In an amenable and open manner, Gursky himself, along with experts and mentors such as Werner Spies and Hilla Becher, introduces us to the technical and aesthetic approach to his art.
