SPACE AS A “CRIME SCENE”*
The black-and-white photographs are a comparative examination of different urban spaces designed by one architect in a city. They focus on the material constitution of urban spaces from the vantage point of someone walking by in bright daylight. The gaze is directed upward. The eaves of the buildings delineate the shape of public spaces. “Im Raume lesen wir die Zeit”—In space we read time.*
In contrast, the large-format color photographs are overviews in specific spaces. Space furthermore becomes recognizable as a complex situation. Interaction in architectural space, visible to its depths, attests to the urban fabric and the context beyond the frame of the photograph. Situative work, the development of actions with people on the spot, is part of my architecture photography.
