Wim Wenders has for years carried around an old panoramic camera that has come in handy when the extent or impressive nature of experience is beyond normal measure. And with as passionate a keen-sighted person as Wenders, that is frequently the case: landscapes stretch into infinity, horizons divide the world into water, earth and air, deserts and mountain ranges are overwhelming in their emptiness and silence, street fronts, whether in Havana, Houston, Texas or Berlin, draw our gaze to the very depths of civilization or to the abyss of horror.

Alongside directing atmospheric auteur films the artist works with the medium of photography. This exhibition brings together a selection of works from the long-running project Pictures from the Surface of the Earth which began in the early 1980s and continued for the next twenty years. Working with Plaubel Makina and Fuji panoramic cameras, Wenders produces large-format prints which envelope the viewer, engulfing their field of vision. Each image captures a world that has been.

German artist and film director Wim Wenders began taking photographs back in 1983. From the start, he has brought his unique sensibility to focus on the villages and landscapes of the United States and Havana, the forests and temples of Japan, the coast of Galilee and the endless roads of the deserted Australian outback. Using the solitary medium of photography as a point of departure, Wim Wenders brings the viewer closer to landscapes void of humanity but charged with a powerful notion of the human presence

Globetrotting filmmaker Wim Wenders always takes his old panorama camera with him, using it whenever the sheer wealth of what he sees and the impression it leaves on him breaks the normal scale of things. Infinite landscapes, endless horizons, deserts, and mountain ranges overwhelm by their emptiness and silence, street fronts in Havana, Houston, Berlin, or Jerusalem offer deep insights into the shallows of civilization. Wenders' photographs are pictures of a world almost devoid of humans, a natural or man-made world viewed from a distance. They shed light on the many guises the surface of the earth dons and attest to Wenders' contemplative and amazed gaze. This gaze, of course, didn't stop at September 11 and delivered haunting photos of Ground Zero taken shortly after the attack. With poetic comments by the artist on all the pictures, the book is both a portrait of the world as encountered by the photographer and a portrait of the photographer as reflected in his vision of the world.

Wenders is maybe the most original photo maker, he actually is a film maker and that could be the difference and the reason why. Anyway, his pictures are always incredible static emotions and in this book he confirms his distinctive style. One more a beautifull book !

Profoundly beautiful images.

I was tempted to give this a 4 Star rating due to being spoiled by Wim Wender's book "Once" - it is the text associated with the photos that really makes that book ("Once") an absolute masterpiece. But, right as I started to go for the 4, I considered the photographs themselves. Wim has such a great eye and can convey such loneliness and singular isolation from within the frame of something beautiful and busy, that I had to go for the 5 Stars.

[...]Next step will be to get Wim associated with the quality of photo book publishers that produce books for Robert Polidori and ilk - so some of the richer content that can be seen in Wim's original photos can be enjoyed by everyone.

A treasure in the cinema and a treasure in the darkroom...

The images created by Wenders in this book are nothing short of extraordinary. His eye for colour and composition are remarkable. They are very evocative by the simplest and most minimalist methods. This edition can be enjoyed in association with the liner notes which appear on his website under "haiku's", small poetic passages, describing the scene, mood and intent. A must have!
