Behind the Scenes – HOPE Exhibition

Preparation of the exhibition HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck

 

The premiere of the charity photography exhibition HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck – an important milestone for the pioneer project of social responsibility within the reportage photography. For sure, the dreams and ideas are correspondingly ambitious. 52 fine art prints on handmade paper from Hahnemühle were mounted unframed at the Gotischen Kasten in Eggenfelden.

With extreme caution, the sensitive prints had to be positioned in the right light… one after the other. And even the light, of course, was not left by chance. The process of light tests with different color temperatures in connection with the black and white prints on handmade paper took more than a week. All in all, the preparations for the opening of the exhibition took more than 2 months to finally celebrate a hopefully unique vernissage and a successful launch of the touring exhibition.
