Michael Nguyen is a flâneur.  In the ongoing part „Calmness in Sight“ which features work from 2018 on Michael Nguyen shows architectural objects and the little details around us taken in various cities. For him, architectural photography has exclusively an artistic function that interprets a building in a way that deliberately deviates from reality. Cityscapes, city views, individual architectural objects, architectural details, street furniture, street art, monuments, interior views are his topics. Many of this pictures primarily show outdoor shots of urban design at the intersection of architecture, urban planning and sociology.

Artistic photography today moves quite differently than it did a few decades ago as a visual force and communicative intervention. This is amid an overflowing stream of images whose production, administration, and dissemination have long since run out of control of conscientious management.

After film, television, computers, it is above all the smartphone that has catapulted us into a new visual age. Often, the challenge is to give the eyes an occasion to linger between their unsteady jumps from image to image. Michael Nguyen succeeds excellently in creating such an occasion with his photographs by creating clarity of vision and a challenge of interpretation through reduction and focus.
