The series offers a visual journey through the dynamic urban landscapes of Europe, highlighting the architectural achievements of the modern era.Through his lens, Nguyen also reveals the hidden gems and lesser-known modern architectural wonders of each city. Sometimes, they interact with the old monuments. Sometimes, there are people around. Sometimes, they are alone. But all are extraordinarily serene, quite muted and restrained; even those with colorful facades.
Nguyen’s masterful use of light and composition adds depth and drama to each image, creating a series that is both visually stunning and thought-provoking. Whether capturing the stark beauty of minimalist design or the dynamic interplay of light and shadow in postmodern structures, “Urban Discoveries” offers a fresh perspective on the beauty and complexity of modern urban architecture.
