Much of my photographic work consists of serial slide projections. The photographic interest lies not in the decisive moment but in spaces-times manifested in the succession of images. The series focus on urban scenes and scenarios. I photograph people lingering for several hours from the same viewpoint. The images, a successive projection of analogue slides, follow one another without fading. Weissenfels was done at the entrance to a large industrial slaughterhouse over the course of a day. The comings and goings of vehicles indirectly attest to what is happening inside. Spanning 20 years, the installation consists of three projections done with cameras that follow the technological developments over that period.
Exhibition curator: Florian Ebner.

Frank Berger
Frank Berger studied in Leipzig and graduated in Photography in 1999. The following two years he continued his studies under Timm Rautert until attaining his titel "Meisterschüler" in 2001. Since then he has been working independently. In 2005, together with other Leipzig artists, he founded the gallery Amerika in Berlin. He has continued to use the medium of the slide projection, which he began with during his studies. The presentations have a sequential structure, referencing the reproductive quality and the documentary claims of the photographic medium.
