Did Simon Hogsberg Shoot the Widest Photo Ever Taken?


The trouble with photographers like Simon Hoegsberg is that it’s difficult to choose only one of his projects to tell you about.

To create We’re All Gonna Die – 100 meters of existence, he stood on a railroad bridge in Berlin for 20 days, photographing strangers.

The result: a print 30 inches high, and 100 METERS wide. Gasp.

He captured 178 people in all, each experiencing a beautifully simple moment of their lives, completely unaware.

Thanks, Simon, for reminding us that sometimes you don’t need to go far for inspiration, you just need to wait.
