German photographer Julian Faulhaber seeks out newly constructed public places (supermarkets, apartment complexes, factories, theaters, parking lots) and photographs them in the fleeting period between their completion and use. Using long exposure times and available lighting (often fluorescent), he produces candy-colored, semi-abstract images of these impeccable manmade spaces, devoid of nature and human beings. Though they seem unreal, with their garish coloring and eerie emptiness, Faulhaber’s photographs are un-manipulated. By angling his camera and tightly framing the scenes before his lens, he emphasizes the rigid geometry of the built environment, which seems oddly unfit for human beings. [ via ]
