Title: Mural Moments

About the Photo:

The photographic project »mural moments« focuses on the corners of buildings within the city. Capturing brief instances characterized by a unique interplay of sunlight, shadow, and surface, the photographs explore the urban realm in search of its aesthetic qualities. They establish dialogs between concept and contingency, abstraction and precision, architecture and aesthetics. By carving out ephemeral compositions of form and color from the heterogeneous surfaces of the city’s built environment the images highlight moments of artistic presence in our everyday life. They draw our attention to the beauty that can be found along the streets we are constantly navigating.
