Johannes Hepp

Adopting the title from the 1983 film, “The Day After,” a graphic story about the days before, during, and after a nuclear strike upon the USA, German artist Johannes Hepp has created a unique series of benign, yet paradoxically disturbing images which metaphorically conflate the decisive moment of terror attacks and the passage of time. Hepp searches for sites of terror attacks around the world and he records people going about their daily business in these previously sabotaged areas. The focus is always on life afterwards and everyday risk-taking. His panoramas are digital compositions based on scans of ten to 20 images reflecting incidents that occurred in varying time frames.
