Der Münchner Hobbyfotograf Christian Schweikert stellt in der GOOD TRANSFER Galerie in der Clemensstr.61 , 80303 München (0176-21210950) sein neues Fotoprojekt “Barcelona – Tourism kills the city” vor. Seine Streifzüge durch die katalanische Metropole folgen dabei nicht den üblichen touristischen Pfaden. Den Besuch in Barcelona hat er in ungewöhnlichen Bildern festgehalten. Diese Fotoausstellung arbeitet Auswirkungen des Massentourismus künstlerisch und mit einem Augenzwinkern auf. Seine Fotostreifzüge versuchen die Auswirkungen allgegenwärtiger Touristenmassen in eine Bildsprache zu übersetzen. Warum hat er dieses Thema aufgegriffen? Hier hilft ein Blick in die Statistiken vom Amt für Tourismus: Bevölkerung Barcelona Innenstadt in 2016: 1.6Mio Einwohner versus 12.6 Mio Touristen mit 35 Mio Übernachtungen. Anstieg der Besucher …

You might remember my Abandoned Places Tour’14, where I had taken a lot of photos. From that pool, I picking from time to time a new theme and publish it here. In teh last days, I have uploaded 3 sets from an abandoned paper factore in the Black Forest / Germany: Nature Concures Rust Warehouse
Here some, maybe untypical photos: COLORS
Such a paper factory is a huge and complex system. To my understanding, paper processing is a mix of physical and chemical treatment of the wood fibers. Even when this factory has it’s roots at the beginning of the last century, the control facilities are still there an still impressive: Have alook to the set of photos of the Control facitilies
Another treasure we’vew found on our abandoned places tour ’15: An abandoned paper factory deep in the black forrest. It has been shut down a long time ago, water comes in but it’s beside the natural dergadation still in a very good condition. I’ve shot a lot of material which I’ll publish step by step by themes. Here now the first B/W set:
“LEATHER – an abandoned leather factory – barricated for children” Why barricated? – it was a nice story visiting this place: Sunday noon, trying to find an entrance – making a loop around the complex – all windows and doors bricked; High walls and fences. No way in. We intendet to leave. While discussing that just infront of the building next to the main street, we saw a door open. Inside some noise. I stepped in and found a man in a dark room working. He was the bricklayer completing his work. I asked him why he does that and if we can enter the building. He mentioned in a …
Impressions seen at THE POOL May I introduce – the ball: … walking along the the pool: ….thinking if the water isn’t too cold.. ready to jump:
why this terrible name? – well – I always thought, that I have a hobby not so much people are following. In this location I have learned the opposite. When we arrived, it was OK – no-one there. After a while dozends of photographers, models and other strange people where around. One guy named the place ‘the bitch of the abandoned locations’. The most repellent experience was a group of getto kids making a ‘music’ video: …and here the exciding result: Source: Youtube (applied the standard “embedding link”) Here two photos, maybe not everybody took?
