Heinrich Holtgreve

The Internet as a Place (2013-2015)

In 1969, the archetype of the Internet was developed for the American Ministry of Defence. In the almost half a century that has since passed, the application of the network has been extended from military purposes to all kinds of conceivable forms of interaction between billions of people around the world. But what exactly is this network of networks? Is it a physical place that you can visit? Over the past two years, Heinrich Holtgreve has been taking photographs of the Internet. His search for the Internet’s core has brought him to the North German coast, Egypt and Frankfurt.


Heinrich Holtgreve (West Germany, 1987) studied Photography at the Fachhochschule Bielefeld until 2013. His photographs were featured in GEO and Die Zeit, among others. His clients include Apple and the Goethe Institute in Cairo.
