L'ALSTER CONGELÉEAbout this photograph
Each winter, the Hamburgers hope to be able to walk on the frozen Alster. The distant shot gives the illusion of looking at a model or a reduced scale model. The artist does not intend for the spectator to be able to identify places and even less so individuals. Margarita Kazanovich photographs moments and atmospheres. Like an illustrator drawing a sketch, the photographer captures the essential part of the moment. Between insignificant elements of formidable nature and indispensable protagonists in the history of the world, the photographer gives a tender rendition of this humanity that she just touches upon with her lens.Read more Read less
