The photographic works on display were taken on countless expeditions through Paris and its vicinity during a scholarship stay in 2017. The motifs engage (mostly) with aspects of the city that usually do not feature in the tourist’s perception – they are, depending on the atmosphere, recorded by either analogue or digital means. Be it situations and architectural peculiarities the photographer stumbled upon by chance, or architectural milestones she intentionally visited, such as the UNESCO head quarters, buildings by Le Corbusier, unexpected perspectives on Versailles or public housing projects: they all lend both character and history to Paris. What all photographs in the series have in common is the translation of urban spatial structures and atmospheric density into precise graphic-oriented compositions.
