Heinz Emigholz

“I see framing as a photographic act: setting out the frame in full awareness of what you’re still going to film or what you’ve already filmed. That’s a cinematographic decision, but at the same time, I think that each individual image has to be composed in such concentrated fashion that it can stand for itself, rather than just filling in a gap or being included for editing purposes.”

    STREETSCAPES [DIALOGUE]

    Heinz Emigholz Germany, 2017

    The third entry in Emigholz’s Streetscapes series, and perhaps the one that solves the mystery of it all! Uncharacteristically structured around fictionalized therapy sessions, this is a playful and illuminating experiment shedding light onto the director’s entire architecture-focused body of work.

    DIESTE [URUGUAY]

    Heinz Emigholz Germany, 2017

    A testament to Emigholz’s fascination with geometry, the fourth part of his Streetscapes comes in the shape of a triptych. The film elegantly connects three moments in time through architecture, channeling the notion of permanence across History, and the silent interaction of buildings with nature.

    GOFF IN THE DESERT

    Heinz Emigholz Germany, 2003

    SULLIVAN'S BANKS

    Heinz Emigholz Germany, 2000
