Loneliness In The Realm of Light and Darkness: From Darkness to Light....

  • Photographer
    Michael Nguyen

Buildings, old and modern. Doors, gates, windows, open or closed. Stairs, up and down. Human, there, not there, but always lonesome. This series of black and white photo artworks by Michael Nguyen uses the contrast of not only things, light and darkness but also of meanings to explore the inner contradiction, struggles and loneliness of human being. Contradictorily all of those is executed in a very calm manner.

Everywhere I go, my eyes and senses are in motion. With my camera I capture little things that we often don't notice in everyday life. I like to observe people and photograph them in everyday situations. But my real artistic work begins afterwards. The pictures are digitally processed and go through different stages until I have reached the mood, the sound, the effect, the emotion and the meaning I want to express. Then the photo becomes a "painting" in which I show the real world of myself with all its beauty and horror. That is why I do not consider myself a photographer, but a photoartist.
