Four days in September (2010) Danish photographer Simon Hoegsberg will be giving anyone who needs to discuss particular matters Free Advice + Coffee on the public square Torget in Stavanger. So if there are certain issues (it can be anything) that you’re battling with and which you need to discuss with a second party then it makes sense to visit Simon Hoegsberg’s Free Advice booth on one of the following dates. You’ll even get a free cup of coffee.
You can get a free advice from Simon between 12 o’clock and five o’clock on September 15, 16, 17, and 18 you will find him at the town square outside Steen&Strøm.
A long photograph entitled "We're All Gonna Die - 100 meters of existence" is Danish photographer Simon Hoegsberg's contribution to this year's Article Biennial.
The photograph is 100 meters wide (possibly the world's widest) and shows 178 people walking towards and away from the camera under a clear blue sky. The long photo will be presented on various ATM screens in and around Stavanger.
Simon Høgsberg (b. 1976 in Aarhus, Denmark) lives in Copenhagen where he divides his time between jobs and self-initiated photo projects that have at least one thing in common: they are about people. His latest project - We're All Gonna Die - is a photograph of 100 meters containing 178 portraits of people shot in the course of 20 days from the same spot on a railroad bridge in Berlin in the summer 2007. Simon got a BA in photography in London in 2002, and has been working as a freelancer since then.
