Soy Capitán hosting Galerie Thomas Fischer:

Irmel Kamp  Zink


When looking down on the city of Paris, there is a special bluish-white, dull shine on the roofs. This comes from zinc, which Georges-Eugène Haussmann ordered to be used across the city. The material was mined in Kelmis on the German-Belgian border, and Irmel Kamp also comes from this area. 
She began her very first series in the late 1970s: pictures of buildings with zinc façades that she systematically photographed in a certain area. The project took several years, only ending when entirely completed.
