“We’re All Gonna Die—100 Meters of Existence” is the title of (perhaps) the world’s longest photograph. It is, as one might expect, 100 meters long (100 m x 78 cm), and consists of 178 portraits of people walking towards and away from the camera under an open sky. All portraits that were shot for the picture (roughly three thousand in all) were taken over twenty days from the same spot on a railway bridge on Warschauer Strasse in Berlin in the summer of 2007. There was no set up; all portraits are of people who happened to walk where the photographer was shooting.
