“Go clubbing has become an integral part of nowadays social interaction. From ‘night life’ we expect pleasure, desire, fun and hilarity – at least this is suggested by advertising and society. The photo designer Hanna Witte questioned these expectations in her series Nacht.Leben. Her portraits reveal the world of the protagonists during a clubbing night. The images provide glimpses and avoid giving away to much from the stories behind. They tell about a different story of clubbing nights – loneliness, rejection and isolation, while being surrounded by many people.”
Hanna Witte’s series “Nacht.Leben” (night-live) has been photographed very clean, but the work is nevertheless convincing. – Sometimes I feel that the ‘design’ in photo design is a little bit too much weighted at the University of Applied Sciences in Dortmund.
