Documentation of a fan hike on the famous mountain “Hahnenkamm” in Tyrol, Austria. This event used to take place during a few summers, and was organised by the management of the popular Austrian folk singer Hansi Hinterseer. About 10.000 fans from all over Europe gathered in the early morning hours in order to walk and sing together with their idol. The hike truly had the character of a pilgrimage, and generated extensive media coverage. The short-time “invasion” of an enormous mass of people into the idyllic Tyrolean landscape, and a perfectly commercialized event captured my interest. The images tend to be quite satiric, almost artificial. This is stressed by the vibrant colours and thronged compositions.
