Instant Love

One round of Hamburg for everyone, please! Over 400.000 images have been hashtagged with #welovehh on Instagram, each of them a very personal perspective on the beautiful city way up north. Be it architectural highlights, personal snapshots of experiences in Hamburg, odd birds or the spectacular unobtrusiveness of an unexcited side road – all of it is Hamburg. Plus, the harbour. Plus, the Elbphilharmonie. Plus, the Schanze. It’s time to choose the most beautiful shots out of this breath-taking abundance of tagged photos and put them on display. 10 curating pioneers of smartphone photography will be doing this and making the pictures available to the public – beyond virtual space. From June 9th to 18th, Hamburg’s beauty will be on display in an exhibition in the Alte Bahnmeisterei in the Oberhafenquartier. And the best part: Anyone can join in. 200 pictures in 10 categories will be presented in the end. Until May 8th, any old or new image of Hamburg can be hashtagged and presto: it might be one of the chosen few. And on June 10th, it’s time to celebrate: The pictures. The people. The city.
