‘White Wall’ presents street photography by Ole Christiansen. Unlike many such series of quick snapshots, however, Ole Christiansen’s images are highly orchestrated and graphically framed. All of them were taken at a specific location in the city, where a white wall is the theatrical backdrop against which passers-by perform their one-second acts as marionettes.
Random situations from everyday life unfold while people pass by and through the photographer’s selection, everyday surreal coincidences and photographically blessed crucial moments are isolated. The result become a masterful frieze, a flood of people on their way from one place to another, without purpose or explanations.
