This image is 100 meters long. There are 178 people in the Picture, all shot in the course of 20 days from the same spot on a railroad bridge on Warschauer Strasse in Berlin in the Summer 2007.

"It’s meant to point out that life is beautiful, and unless we open up to each other instead of keeping our longings, hopes and experiences to ourselves we’ll fall into the grave with a lot of valuable information and love that we never got around to sharing with the people we’re in touch with. I believe that it is meaningful to let the thought that we’re going to die into our heads once in a while because it brings into perspective what we’re actually doing with the life we’ve been given." - says Simon in an interview with Digital Photography School

The camera used for the project was a Canon 1D Mark II, and the lens a Canon 400mm. The post processing was done in Photoshop.
