Festival Weekend: Portraits in Motion
Aurora Nova presents Volker Gerling
Volker Gerling is a passionate creator of flipbooks and an intrepid traveller. Since 2003, he has walked over 3,500km throughout Germany, inviting people to visit his travelling Flipbook “thumb cinema” exhibition and creating flipbook portraits of some of the people he meets along the way.
In the show, Portraits in Motion, Gerling shows the audience a selection of his favourite portraits by holding each one under a video camera so that its moving images are projected onto a large screen. In a series of enchanting and precious moments the people he photographed come to life on screen as he shares the heart-warming and moving stories behind each encounter.
