Wim Wenders talks about his photo exhibition in Berlin

I’ve found recently in The Economist an interview to the german film director Wim Wenders, who has an ongoing photo exhibition in Berlin. Wenders is known for some movies like Buena Vista Social Club, Pina, Der Himmel über Berlin (Wings of desire) but his photographic skills are lesser known. In the interview I’m sharing just below, there is a sentence I’ve liked:

I am not a landscape photographer. I am interested in people. I am interested in our civilization. I am interested in what traces we leave in landscapes, in cities and places. But I wait until people have gone, until they are out of the shot.

A photographer interested in people who makes photos after they have gone is an interesting, if not curious, approach.
