Volker Gerling          


A flipbook might look like an ordinary but unusually shaped book, but appearances can be deceiving. Open it, flip its pages and you'll see a miniature movie. In Germany, home of Volker Gerling, the word for flipbook is Daumenkino – literally thumb-cinema. Gerling walked 4,000km in 15 years, photographing those he met along the way. He compiles these portraits into flipbooks which capture magical everyday encounters. Gerling returns to Edinburgh with his Total Theatre Award winning show, featuring old favourites and new faces: a gentle meeting of cinema, photography and story.


Disarmingly beautiful.

My quirky hit of the festival so far is undoubtedly Portraits in Motion (...) one of those shows that completely defies categorisation.

Art could not be quieter, simpler or more beautiful.

Each year, the Fringe throws up curiosities like this: little gems that let you see the world a little differently. Just delightful.

This is one of those shows you hope to stumble across at the Fringe, an oddity and a revelation.
