Architecture / Industry | Nominee

Peter Franck




The pictures shown here were captured in Moscow. Sustained by the city’s dominant atmosphere of seemingly extreme artificiality, they were shot in a studio shortly after the completion of a campaign for Obi Russia. When everything was in the can and the props were gone, what remained was this architecture. The scenery and spaces for new stories. The processing applied attempts to walk the knife-edge between photography and painting and is a direct consequence of the theatricality of the overall impression. Changing only a few parameters creates an altered reality – a stage that is just waiting to be played. The curtain rises and the actors take the stage.
