The series ”UnterBrücken” by Anja Schlamann features low-angle shots of Cologne river-crossings. They are photographed from the water and some of them are structured out of 150 individual shots. These graphically constructive and simultaneously extensively painterly images conjoin in snippets to form one unit, a new bridge. The novel gaze beneath the spanning works of engineering is surprising; their rarely noticed steel constructions become legible in this way. On the undersides, little is seen of the liveliness on the bridges, and that enhances the images’ attraction. Their colour scheme, standardized in 1929, unites them to form one series.
