“Was macht eigentlich …?“ Vernissage

“Was macht eigentlich …?” Exhibition

Hamburg’s store signs

Author: Chris Campe

In 2010, designer Chris Campe photographed over 1,000 store signs in Hamburg and published a typographic portrait of the city in the book “Hamburg Alphabet.” But the city is changing rapidly. That’s why Chris Campe photographed the signs and their locations again ten years after the book was published.

An updated new edition of the “Hamburg Alphabet” will be published in a limited edition of 250 copies to accompany the “Was macht eigentlich …?” Exhibition at Enfants Artspace.
