Die Leidenschaft von Diane Vincent sind Dächer. Dieser, für mich sehr gut nachvollziehbaren, Leidenschaft hat sich die Fotografin hingegeben und ihre Ausflüge auf Berlins Dächer der letzten Jahre in dem wunderbaren, handgemachten Buch „OBEN“ festgehalten.
For several years I climbed numerous rooftops to make pictures, over and over again. For a long time I didn’t know exactly why; I simply felt attached to these strange, unknown and obscure places. I explored my city from a different angle and I photographed architectural situations up there being fascinated by the vastness and expanse as well as its limitation by moments of blocked sights. Eventually I realized that I had compiled a personal map – an imaginary walk in another dimension.
