The series CITY ICONS presents public places which everybody has at least heard of or most pepole might have visited.
Each location is presented during the change of light of the blue hour in one single shot.
The postcardlike picture becomes alive and is peceived in a different way due to the traffic, the action of people passing by and - the time passing by.
The effect is astonishing. All architectural and touristic icons are transformed and reintegrated to their every days context.
The myth of the postcardlike view is deconstructed, the attention shifts to little actions and details which otherwise would have been overseen or of no interest.
