City Focus: Düsseldorf by Andi Heuser

Bach Strasse

I just describe how I photograph – this means not so much the photographic technique but the search for images (which is more a kind of “non-search”) and the moment I decide to take a photo
(I shoot not so many frames because I use a 6×7 film camera).

I don’t very much follow an idea or concept instead I just take my camera with me every time I go out.
I wait until I “see an image”. This is not a result of thinking, I just see an image, that’s all. Then I stop, take my camera out and try to find the point from where I can capture this image.
I prefer a very objective style, so I mostly point the camera head-on to the scene. The rest is simple photographic technique like definining depth of sharpness and correct exposure time.

In some cases I visit special locations like the disused and abandoned factory which I photographed during the last few days. But there it’s the same: I go along and look everywhere until an image catches my eye
