German term or phrase: von der Ferne in die Nähe
Das Bildkonzept bewegt sich von der Ferne in die Naehe. Je Abstrakter und dinglicher es wird, je naeher man sich vom Menschen zu den tatsaechlichen Anwendungen und Produkten bewegt, desto fokussierter und abstracter wird die Aufnahme.

From CI guidelines for choosing photographs. Would this be something like "zooms in on the subject?"
