…We’re all gonna die?

We're All Gonna Die

Simon Hoegsberg’s work, We’re All Gonna Die – 100 meters of existence is a (you guess it) 100 meter long picture composed of 178 different portraits all captured over the course of 20 days from the same spot on a railroad bridge on Warschauer Strasse in Berlin in the summer of 2007.

The title of the photograph: “We’re All Gonna Die – 100 meters of existence” is not meant to spread fear as some people may believe – on the contrary, it’s meant to point out that life is beautiful, and unless we open up to each other instead of keeping our longings, hopes and experiences to ourselves we’ll fall into the grave with a lot of valuable information and love that we never got around to sharing with the people we’re in touch with. I believe that it is meaningful to let the thought that we’re going to die into our heads once in a while because it brings into perspective what we’re actually doing with the life we’ve been given.

Darren Rowse from Digital Photography School also had a chance to speak with Simon about the work, so be sure to read the full interview there for more info.
