My Corona Experience (March to July 2020)
My Corona Experience shows images that were either newly taken in 2020 or rediscovered and re-edited during the review of my archive in 2020.
Zewa wisch und weg (»wipe and gone«). Even though the paper mill at Waldhof had multiple owners and names in recent years, it still remains for the people of Mannheim »Die Zellstoff«, the former Waldhof chemical pulp factory. For me it embodies today – just as twenty years ago – a piece of industrial romanticism. Even back then, it looked as if it had fallen out of time – in the age of Industry 4.0 more than ever. It’s amazing that its outward appearance hardly has changed over the last twenty years – and more. Which is not to say that the interior is not ultramodern. It is exciting to follow the changes in minor details over the last twenty years in a series of images from the same perspective.
