The artist

It’s important to follow your dreams. Such is the message from German photographer Nikolaus Gruenwald who gave up his legal career in favour of his passion for images. Starting out in photography at the age of 19 with an entry-level reflex, he soon developed a sense of observation while experimenting with various photographic techniques. After several years of experience, his eye now focuses on urban photography and travel. The work of Nikolaus Gruenwald is thus characterised by a heightened awareness of architecture and special focus on documentation. Living in Stuttgart, his projects have earned him international recognition, notably during exhibitions in Germany and the United States. He has regularly published his work in books and magazines the world over.  ... See more See less

“I believe art is the most powerful if it is able to bring emotions and thoughts. So if you are able to evoke this kind of a reaction with the viewer of an image you have done a good job. I often use architecture to transport general scenes of our society, because architecture tells a lot about the people who live in this place, and it is also very capable of provoking a personal movie in the head of the viewer.“

About the artwork

This image is taken from a series dedicated to the communal spaces that Nikolaus Gruenwald has roamed on his many travels. The German artist is passionate about the photographs that document his travels, and about complex urban architecture and atmospheres. Through the prism of his lens, he offers a range of locations, which he captures according to a precise point of view, combining poetry and rigour. Beyond a drive to document them for posterity, Nikolaus Gruenwald seems haunted by the desire to reveal the soul of the places he visits. Captured in 2012 in Aberdeen in Washington state, this image speaks volumes about the unsuspected atmosphere of small American towns. Specialising in wood, Aberdeen is where Kurt Cobain was born, singer of the band Nirvana, but also the city with the highest suicide rate in the country. Devoid of any human presence for the photograph, the spectator seems to ponder if this might be a ghost town?
