Outdoor documentary of HafenCity in Hamburg, Germany

Hamburg’s HafenCity com­pris­es an indus­tri­al port and mod­ern urban build­ings. The con­tem­po­rary archi­tec­ture, his­toric struc­tures, water, and land have blend­ed into an attrac­tive over­all pic­ture – doc­u­ment­ing it pho­to­graph­i­cal­ly was the goal of the pho­to doc­u­men­tary cre­at­ed by our pho­tog­ra­ph­er Sebastian Kuhn.

Quick glances of eternal moments

The suc­cess of pho­to doc­u­men­taries such as this one depends on the photographer’s eye and speed: The sit­u­a­tion in a port can change entire­ly in moments and motifs can dis­ap­pear in a mat­ter of sec­onds. This is why these eter­nal pic­tures are based on snap­shots alone because, of course, repro­duc­ing moments that have passed is not pos­si­ble – you could nev­er ask a cap­tain to set his con­tain­er ves­sel ten meters back so you could get a bet­ter shot.
