Hans Martin Sewcz

Berlin-Mitte Mai 1979

Hans Martin Sewcz makes photographs using a Russian Horizont Camera. Sewcz was fascinated by the Spandau Quarter's "unintentional authenticity": the dilapidated pre-war buildings, the large swathes of fallow ground, the massive firewalls and the dark brick buildings. His district was all the more intriguing precisely because it couldn't boast the imposing Soviet constructions lining the Karl Marx Allee or Alexanderplatz. The 120° field of view panorama photographs immerse the viewer in a time that has long since faded from memory.
