On the Streets of Solitude

Michael Nguyen
Photographer | Artist based in Munich, Bavaria, Germany
Who says, streets are our most social lively spaces? Maybe. But they are also places of broken dreams, of empty selves, of collective solitude. Taken in Colmar and the border triangle of Germany, France, Switzerland, the photographs of Michael Nguyen show gloomy cityscapes, cold and bleak: Empty benches on the sidewalks, a tired bicycle, walls covered with barbed wire. Sometimes, there are people sitting by, walking down, which doesn't make the streets livelier. The only sign of hope is children, who are pursuing their own activities without knowing what lies ahead in the future.
