Portraits in Motion at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 3–5 November 2016, from £5.00 - Book now

Volker Gerling is a master of flipbooks. Since 2003 he has walked 3,500km across Germany, creating flipbook portraits of the people he met along the way, and inviting others to visit his travelling “thumb cinema”. Here, Gerling displays some of his favourite portraits by holding each under a video camera so that its moving images can be projected onto a screen. In a series of enchanting moments, the portraits come to life as Gerling shares the heart-warming stories behind each encounter.
