This series of photos was taken on a train between Frankfurt and Cologne. The artist was alone in the carriage. He opened the windows all the way down and took three films of the scenery flying past. Later, he chose some ten shots in which the line of the earth’s horizon coincides with the bar of the window, leaving the sky empty above it. The Stances (from the Latin stans, sto, stare: to stand or remain) are numbered 1 to 10 and are all (including the black-and-white ones) printed on Ilfochrome paper.
