The magazine of the photo-essay
April 2018 issue
In Between
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
by Henrik Spohler
Henrik Spohler’s project, In Between, investigates the transit sites that are essential to this worldwide stream of commodities, yet are almost never seen by consumers (that is, most of us). The globalization that has occurred over the last two to three decades is characterized by continuous acceleration whose frequency and compulsion are difficult to avoid. Commodities are available to consumers nearly everywhere at any time. Logistical intersections, such as harbours and freight airports, as well as facilities that have been set up along trade corridors, are areas that cater only to economic functions. Seen alone, these places betray no hint of which country or continent they might be located in. The photographs in this project show the flipside of industrial production and commercial trade. Fictitious-looking motifs from nameless territories in Europe and Asia emerge, spreading out and slicing through landscapes.
