The On the Move exhibition explores movement as captured by the most acclaimed photographers of the past century. It runs in Berlin from March 17 to May 15, 2015 and features both legendary photographers such as Lee Miller, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Philippe Halsman, and Alvin Langdon Coburn, and the brightest stars of contemporary photography such as Oliver Mark, Gundula Friese, Chien-Chi Chang, and Petr Lovigin.

The exhibition includes more than 100 photographs from 13 photographers. The work spans more than a century, from the earliest photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn (1882-1966) to an original photo series created for the exhibition by Russian photographer Petr Lovigin (b. 1981).

On the Move is being hosted by the Association of the German Automotive Industry (Verband der Automobilindustrie).

A limited-edition, hand-bound catalogue of the exhibition’s photography has been published by the °CLAIR Gallery on behalf of the Association of the German Automotive Industry.
