"In a black black city
there is a black black
(kids' scare folklore)
Zwart Huis, 2015-18, photobook is completed and went to a friend for editing, meanwhile I selected a few original prints to display at my house.
The photobook is inspired by urban architecture, it includes 120 minimal, intentionally dark, low contrast, almost black and black images. Shot mostly in the Hague and Almere, hence the Dutch title. What I started in 2015 under the influence of Galassi's and alike ideas, focusing mainly on shapes, created by light and shadow, in a while changed into a concept more complex, a kind of an urban maze, where I allowed myself to create a hideaway within a hideaway, bending or expanding spaces, creating an illusion of a city. I "built" it around myself, image by image.
When it's available online, I'll give you the link with all the details.
