Simon Hoegsberg: Street Photography


A while ago I stumbled upon a pretty cool photo project by Simon Høgsberg, a freelance photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The title of the article I was reading about him was “Did Simon Hogsberg Shoot the Widest Photo Ever Taken?” and the title of the photo is We’re All Gonna Die (click on the link to see the full picture!). The goal of the project, according to the artist, was not to scare his audience, but to help us realize how special life really his and to remind us to live life to the fullest! Take your time to look carefully at the photo; it’s full of interesting details. I particularly like the guy with the baby in a sling.

Il y déjà quelques semaines j’ai eu la chance de découvrir un projet photo assez hors de l’ordinaire. Le titre de l’article est “Est-ce que Simon Hogsberg a pris la photo la plus large du monde?” (Voyez par vous-meme en clicquant sur la photo en haut!). En fait, c’est plutôt le sujet ordinaire qui rend ce projet vraiment interessant. Le photographe est Simon Høgsberg, qui vit à Copenhague au Danemark. Le projet s’intitule We’re All Gonna Die, ce qui veut dire “Nous allons tous mourrir”. Le but du projet, d’après Simon n’était pas de faire peur aux gens, mais plutôt de nous faire réaliser que nous devrions toujours profiter de la vie au maximum! Quelle belle philosophie!!

Make sure you check the many projects Simon has on his personal site. In the meantime, check out one of my personal favourites:
