An acclaimed film director who also uses the medium of photography, Wim Wenders addresses themes of travel, movement, time, and music. This image, Entrance, was originally taken in Houston, Texas, while the artist was preparing for his film Paris, Texas.
Wenders once said that photography is akin to "watching death at work", as the unique moments that a negative captures will then change; the architecture or people in the images will disappear with time. The artist was struck by how artificial and new everything was in Houston, feeling that none of it would last.
The glossy-black tarmac and bright-white architectural forms in Entrance underline this notion of sterile newness, while the looming-black shadows might suggest the uncertainty of change.
