Got to love his response to did you ever "compare notes with Dennis Hopper"
Thank you for sharing this. I got to hear and meet Wim Wenders at a small presentation of his film "Alice in the Cities" NY in about '77. I'd already seen the American Friend which remains one of my absolute favorite films of all time.
The title "...why photography is over" is a bit over the top. I know I am drawn to images because it is about the image but more important, know that my kids who are millennials are as well.
That said, Wenders questioning and preoccupation with all things related to the "capture of real events" on some device or other is thematic for him and integrated into his cinema.... a poignant other example is the recorded message Harry Dean Stanton leaves in Paris, Texas.
