photography by Holger Schnell | Severe Beauty - Strenge Schönheit
From January 30 to March 9, 2016, the "Galerie Sheriban Türkmen" hosts the exhibition "Severe Beauty - Strenge Schönheit".
"Severe Beauty" shows a series of abstract architectural photography. The pictures do not strive for naturalistic representation of reality but for unfolding an aesthetic intuition.
By focusing on architectural details and their disassociation the view opens for something new. Reduction of colors and shapes establish a free space for imagination. In this process the abstract form, lines, light, shadows create beauty: Severe Beauty, "Strenge Schönheit".
Part of the exhibition are some pictures from the "White Wall" series, a collection of square format images showing stylised house façades in black and white.
