This is a formal study of real-world images that try to convey a clear approach to the way we look and relate to unexpected places that at first glance don’t exist in a metaphorical way or just don’t strike us as interesting or attractive. There’s no particular story to tell only the need to expose a different kind of beauty through my own personal subjective view and sensitivity expanding the criteria of my own esthetic values and context of a captured image in a particular scenario.
The perception of Non-Space relates directly to a well establish photography technique called Deadpan, which centers the subject in the middle of the image, this can be a person or any kind of building. This esthetic relates very closely to my interpretation and perception of space and non-space when capturing images in the real world where you have no prearrange lighting, no object positioning nor elaborate compositions, just a direct and honest image of reality.
