Snapshot: ‘Running with the Bulls, Pamplona’

Katrin Korfmann is a German-born photographer best known for large-scale, bird’s-eye view photographs in which the finished work has been developed from multiple shots – sometimes several hundred – and then digitally processed and merged into a collage.

“Running with the Bulls, Pamplona” (2012) is part of a series called Count for Nothing currently on show in Los Angeles. “Various instants in time are being linked as if they took place at the same moment,” explains Korfmann. “The photo collages are always captured from various perspectives overhead and against natural monochrome grounds to give a strikingly abstract context.”

Other images in the series include transit areas such as railway stations, airports and public squares, and, particularly strikingly, an overhead shot of students on an emerald lawn at King’s College, Cambridge.

‘Katrin Korfmann: Count for Nothing’ at Kopeikin Gallery, Culver City, California, until December 22
