Life behind the facade:
Gauting-based photographer Michael Nguyen shows photographs at the Culture Centre Bosco that depict roadside motifs in unexpected beauty.
The first photo at the top of the stairs at Bosco in Gauting looks like an illusion. There seem to be trees and a diving tower suspended at the top, but then the viewer recognises the reflection in the water of the large pool in the Gauting summer pool.

All the others show photos from Munich and cities in Bavaria, Austria and Italy that Nguyen roamed through during the long months of the pandemic.
