Video Walk - Behind the Streets of the World
You can imagine that street life in Ghana is completely different as opposed to street life in Afghanistan. Or the fact that Baghdad is way more difficult to photograph than Rome. But all 195 photographs have one thing in common: they are stacked with beautiful stories. Of course you can immerse yourself into the colourful photographs and get lost in the endless details, but you could also spice up your streets experience even more. How? By discovering the true stories behind the street photography with our Streets of the World Video Walk!
What can you expect?
Photojournalist Jeroen Swolfs takes you on a tour around the world through his most fascinating photos in a fun series of short videos and among others tells you about an exciting market in Accra where the merchandise is simply displayed on the train track, but what happens when a train comes rushing down? Be startled by the elegant position of a woman on the street of Kabul or the heroic adventure of a Georgian penguin!
And above all, how did Jeroen actually ensured that there is a general theme, or rather more like a horizontal theme ;) through all his photos? Also the technical details of the Streets of the World photo project are highlighted during this video tour.
How does it work?
Planning to visit a Streets of the World exhibition? Then download the Video Walk (in English) for just €4,99 on your phone or tablet before you visit the exhibition. Watch the introduction, search for the right photo at the exhibition that corresponds with the video and press play. The total duration of the walk is approximately 60 minutes, but you can repeat or pause the videos as many times as you want. Some countries have included extra (video)information via links. Don’t forget to bring your headphones or earplugs so that you are able to listen carefully.
Create your own museum experience at home
Don't have any time to visit the exhibition, or would you prefer to watch the Behind the Streets - Video Walk at your own pace? That's also a possibility! You can use the Video walk in combination with the photo book. You can order the photo book here, if you haven't done it yet.
