Masterstudio Image & Type @ Space

Digital photography is omnipresent because of technical progress in our modern society: even mobile phones contain the possibility to capture everyday occupations. Online image archives have blurred the border between public space and personal archive and are accessible to everyone.

(intentionally shot just to test the device)
 gained a true reason to exist.

See the video below of how I collected the images
