Ali Chraibi : ‘Downtown Memories’ (Photography)

‘Downtown Memories’ series captures classically un-photogenic neighborhoods of Marrakesh through nicked and dirty car windows panes. Shooting encased in a moving vehicle, Chraibi managed to achieve well-composed, satisfyingly grainy images specked with points of light. He shows the true nature of the constructions of a city by taking us on a journey into a universal city. The shapes and shades of black & white structures seem familiar, but the vision is blurred and distant, through rain and fragmented light.

Michael Najjar : ‘Netropolis’ (Hybrid Photography)

The series ‘Netropolis’ [2003 – 2006] is an exploration of the way global cities will develop in the future. In 1926 director Fritz Lang created the vision of a futuristic 21st Century megacity in his film ‘Metropolis’. Now that we’ve crossed the threshold of the 21st Century new sets of factors unthought of by Lang move to shape the future of our urban species.

Ilya Askinazi : ‘A Pointed View’ (Photography Series)

The subjects include the figure, landscapes and the urban environment. Askinazi possesses an innate ability to hone in on the most unique aspects of his chosen subjects — seeing beautiful abstract moments in nature and depicting the seductive qualities of light.

Luis Mallo : ‘In Camera’ Series (Photography)

Luis Mallo’s large-scale urban landscapes (most made in his Brooklyn neighborhood) are cleverly realized perceptual puzzles. In each photo, chicken wire, slats, net or fencing of some sort occupies the picture’s foreground, interrupting but not entirely obscuring our view of the factory, parking lot or construction site beyond.

Hans Wilschut : Photography Series

Hans Wilschut creates works that stand alone instead of belonging to a formal series. However, certain themes take shape when looking at his work. His images respond to a world in flux and undergoing globalisation. Wilschut searches the boundaries between public and private domain at the frayed edges of cities for places where changes merge and manifest.

Krystina Stimakovits : Photography Series

A quote from Gary Winogrand has lodged itself indelibly in my mind: “There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described”. It is this seemingly contradictory combination of mystery and fact that keeps me searching from the corners of my eye.

Peter Downsbrough : Black & White Photography

Peter Downsbrough photographs urbanistic complexes, industrial sites, harbour areas and public spaces such as streets and parking lots. Whether it be wasteland, derelict buildings or whatever, these places offer a viewpoint. They let us see the quintessence of our cities.

Tom McLaughlan : Photography Series

Paul Klee said “a line is a dot that went for a walk”. And one day – while out walking in Valencia, Berlin and Zurich – the line came across shadow, sky and negative space. These photographs explore the relationship between the four and were inspired directly by the work and friendship of: Gianni Galassi.

roB_meL – Photography Series (Architectural)

Personally, I think that contemporary architecture has given rise to a new vision of dialogues in urbanism, a sort of “RE – interpretation” of its artistic rhythm of progress – whether it be deconstructionist, brutalist, fantastic or expressionist or clearly visionary or even flowing and introverted.

William Eckersley ‘Dark City’ Night Photography

Initially inspired by the stillness of London at night, photographer William Eckersley began experimenting in late 2007 and after four years of stunning large format photography, he’s published a book of these works called ‘Dark City’ which promise a compelling view of unseen London.

Jef Van den Houte : Architectural Photography

“I’ve been a passionate amateur photographer since the end of the 70s. I’m an open minded photographer and try to appreciate more traditional fine art photography as well as modern and more experimental works. In my own work my favourite topics are urban/architecture…” – Jef Van den Houte

Ronan Guillou : ‘Colour Photography’ ( Series 1 )

Catching places, cities, glances: Ronan Guillou translates his pleasure and desire for keeping traces of them during his walks. Cities, and the people who animate them, are the basis of his humanistic approach. Aside from his commercial campaigns, Guillou’s personal work records moments of ordinary life, where men and women are photographed during their daily routines in urban landscapes.

Ronan Guillou : Colour Photography ( Series 2 )

If his photographs suggest a poetic vision of the ordinary and call upon the imagination of each and every one of us, they also question us on the temporality [material matter] of places, reveal their nearly organic power as well as their fragility, and examine man’s relationship with the constructed universe.

Richard Stultz : ‘Almost Monochrome’ Series (Photography)

What a fascinating place the urban landscape is, with its intersection of architectural shapes, light, and color. Using these elements, I strive to create a structure within an image that’s especially satisfying. Sometimes the scene is mostly geometrical, consisting of trapezoids, rectangles, triangles, and circles.

Takuma Nakahira: For a Language to Come (Photography Series)

Takahira wrote that “Extremely grainy images and intentionally unfocussed photographs in particular, have already become mere decoration.” I can think of many examples where that might be true, but Nakahira’s case, it most definitely is not.
