Regine Petersen COLLECTOR'S EDITION: Find a Fallen Star

In Find a Fallen Star, Regine Petersen uses the stories of meteorite falls as a background for her multifaceted narratives; a rock crashing through the roof of an Alabama home in the 1950s and hitting a woman, a group of children recovering a meteorite in their village in post-war Germany, and a more recent event in India involving two Rajasthani nomads. Petersen visited the places and the eyewitnesses and delved into their stories, expanding her photographic observations with found documents and interviews. Just as meteorites could be considered time capsules, each chapter encapsulates a specific place in a certain time, questioning the notions of memory and history and the relationship between the ordinary and the sublime. Find a Fallen Star has gained numerous awards such as the National Media Museum Bursary UK and the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Prize for Contemporary German Photography.
