Hannover EXPO 2000 series


people queuing along the Finland's pavilion

I just received a CD with scans of more than a hundred transparencies I took at EXPO 2000 exhibition in Hannover. This is an offset from our friend's plan to use my images in his book on transparency in architecture :)
I'll post some of them here.
The above image shows the queue to the very popular Finnish pavilion, clad in burnt pine planks (not entirely sure how it's done but I think its the thin burnt layer that protects the timber from the elements)
It was quite late in the evening but still light enough to shoot handheld, given the 2 dimensional character of the scene. That dark wall was really striking in its emptiness
