Michael Nguyen
Photographer | Artist based in Munich, Bavaria, Germany
Michael Nguyen's ongoing series “Urban Architecture in Black & White“, which is a focus of his black & white work from 2018 - 2022, shows buildings, cityscapes, subway stations, sculptures and, occasionally, people in whom we recognize ourselves or relatives and friends. Architecture is part of a cultural landscape created by man.

This results in a very wide range of objects, including also lost places, individual architectural objects, architectural details, interior views, or even graffiti. Diverse associations lead the viewer on a journey into the inner life of our soul where we recognize the walls and frames of our being.

A photo poetic expedition through contemporary urban planning and urban design. Urban spaces in general, whether for living, working, leisure, public spaces, urban infrastructure or other spaces.

Nguyen also shows “Small Urbanism” like doors, windows and balconies as an element of architecture, a platform between the public and private realm. For Michael Nguyen, his architectural photography has an exclusively artistic function.

The artistic component in architectural photography deliberately interprets a building differently from reality. For this purpose Michael Nguyen uses the tools of digital image processing.

Michael Nguyen often works with strong contrasts, hard structures, a coarse grain, in some motifs a light haze. Both lead the viewer into a generally rather dark world.
