This is a fascinating photographic diary by the German film-maker and visual artist Wim Wenders.
Using material from his work-related travels over the last 30 years – including enormous panoramas of a desolate fairground in Armenia, radioactive landscapes in Fukushima and an open air theatre in Sicily – the exhibition mirrors the broad spectrum of Wenders’ work. 

“Everyone turns right because that’s where the interesting things are, but I turn left … to the places that are strangely quiet or oddly calm,” he explains.

Opens Sep 28; Gammel Strand, Gammel Strand 48, Cph K; glstrand.dk
