It is about 10,000 kilometres from the Yosemite National Park in California to an area just outside Vienna. Hessam Samavatian prepared 8 × 10-inch black-and white negative exposures of the Lower Austrian forest for the journey and in Yosemite National Park he took a second exposure as a counter-shot, so that the two coordinated regions are superimposed and overcome the great spatial distance. In both places he pointed the large-format camera, in which two negative films lie back to back in the cassette, once to the east and once to the west. The resulting double exposure, which is hung back to back as enlargements, figuratively encompasses the whole world, but at least the two continents that contributed decisively to the emergence and democratisation of photography (e.g. through KODAK).
