Urban Exploring | The Smartphone Way

Somewhere near you, a building lies empty. There are no footsteps to be heard in the hallways. The abandoned possessions of previous occupants litter the floor like leaves on the street. Perhaps there’s some old machinery, or a grand stage that’s no longer the center of attention. All the light is natural, and the elements are slowly breaking down the shell around you.

Urban Exploring
The Smartphone Way

by Mark Myerson in Mobiography

Projections | Sabine Wild

London, Paris, Rome, Berlin – Sabine Wild toured Europe’s major cities armed with a camera, ready to transform monuments and skylines in her very special way. Her architectural images are works of art composed of structures and light. Wild captures the world in lines. Her typical vertical and horizontal hatching creates a flickering structure. A fascinating picture in which only hints of the underlying reality remain.

Thanks to Sabine Wild, the Römer in Frankfurt seems like a gothic convention of lights. At the same time, it is not a picture that gives off a feeling of medieval confinement; bright and fresh colours dominate. In the Sachenshäuser Ufer, the artist brings a natural element into her normally very abstract visual language. Arising from the “real” cityscape, the wintry boughs are naturally formed shapes that do not want to assimilate into the horizontal lines of the river or the verticals lines of the Frankfurt skyline. In this way, Wild’s art creates an exciting contrast between art and reality, between alienation and naturalness.

In New York Projections and Asian Projections, Sabine Wild discovers the beauty of the night, which experiences a special appeal in cities full of artificial lights. The lit-up buildings, streetlights, and headlights serve as creative material for the artist’s urban compositions. Luminous batches of colour break through the graphical austerity that Wild otherwise consistently sticks to. The famous skylines of New York, Hong Kong, and Shanghai appear as if painted: Action Painting 2.0.

Sabine Wild has further developed her vertical-line visual language and discovered the digital means for creating her work. In post-processing, she designs her thrilling compositions – dark horizontal and vertical lines stand by powerful colours, painterly passages by graphical areas. As in painting, the energetic way the colour is applied determines the effect the image has. Sabine Wild reveals a new, impressive look at the world and its architecture.

Abstract Photography

Abstract Photography : If you are looking for some dramatic photos which focuses on colour, pattern or texture then you should try out abstract photography. It’s very difficult to unfold the story behind an abstract photo, as it depends on the way the photographer visualizes it. Abstract photography focuses on shape, form, colour, pattern and texture. Photographers can be highly creative with abstract photography as it doesn’t focus on reality. An ordinary photo can be easily turned into an abstract photography, through the creativity of the photographer…

« I Photographed The Vastly Diverse Architecture Of The Netherlands »

tobiasgawrisch02a“Although I’m a german Photographer living in Germany, I’m luckily only living around 60km from the border to the Netherlands.

tobiasgawrisch02bAnd it just so happens that I’m an architectural photographer as well, visiting the Netherlands ever so often.

tobiasgawrisch02cThe modern design and architecture of the Netherlands have always astonished me! It seems that every little town has its own special design. Whether it’s a bridge, a skyscraper, a hotel or some other architectural masterpiece – everywhere you look you’ll find some clever and beautiful modern designs in architecture.

tobiasgawrisch02dI haven’t seen most of this country’s beauty, I’m sure! But what I’ve seen so far makes me want to visit and photograph the Netherlands time and time again!”

“The shapes, shadows and textures of today’s architecture offers a wealth of composition opportunities.”

Jim Riche, in his series Urban Abstracts takes us through a tour of possibility, showing us how the contours of a building can move with the eye in such a way that the building seems to dance its way across your screen. The symmetry and the light of these manmade constructs are displayed beautifully.
