Experimenting with borders corresponds to the artist's subversive relationship to rules and boundaries. In 1996 Thomas Kellner travels through a united Germany with self-made pinhole cameras. While borders were being dismantled in the West, the border of East Germany was the new external border of the EU. Among other series, this series of panoramas was created with a specially built panorama camera. Experimenting with the film, the camera's self-curled cropping, and the stretching of the format are among the fundamentals that led Kellner to contact sheets. It was the way out of the photographic conventions of the format itself.
