After poring over architectural photographs all day at the European Architectural Photography Prize judging in Stuttgart, it made perfect sense that my fellow judges and I took some respite, grabbed a glass of wine and pored over another roomful of architectural photographs for the vernissage of my exhibition Babel Town at Galerie f.75.
Anna Gripp, editor of Photonews magazine and fellow judge, kindly introduced the work and was followed by Wilfried Dechau, founder of Galerie f.75 (and a talented photographer in his own right). The work was apparently well received, though my eavesdropping on German small talk didn’t account for much of that feedback.
Happily, a number of pieces sold during the evening, the first of which was the final photograph to be included in the show. Taken on the long awaited day the two towers of the CCTV Headquarters in Beijing were joined, the photograph is titled The Kiss.
