About the exhibition:
Using his father’s WWII-era Royal Air Force flight book as a point of departure, in this exhibition British-German photographer Mike Chick reflects on a personal as well as recent European history.
Between 2017 and 2019, Chick travelled to twenty-six European cities in Germany, Italy, France, and Poland, all of which had been among his father’s destinations. 75 years after originally appearing in the log book. Here we encounter contemporary nighttime photographs of buildings, streets, and urban spaces that challenge our ideas of time, place, and memory.
