Fotoeins Friday in Kassel: the strangers

Thomas Schütte created “Die Ankunft der Fremden” (The arrival of strangers) for the ‘documenta 9’ art festival in 1992. On the top of the portico of the former Red Palace stand three figures surrounded by some sort of luggage and belongings. The figures appear worried and alienated, looking down at everyday activity in which they cannot take part. This sculpture provides an avenue for social and political commentary about the plight of refugees and migration around the world.

I made the photo above on 3 Oct 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/8, ISO2000, and 88mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
