Nguyen's facade photography is characterized by a unique blend of precision and artistry. His keen eye for detail allows him to capture the subtle nuances of architectural elements and play with light and shadow to create a visual symphony. Whether the play of sunlight on weathered bricks, elegant contemporary design, or the reflection of an urban landscape in a modern glass façade, Nguyen's photographs go beyond the surface and penetrate the soul of the structures he captures. His facade photography invites us on a visual journey through the layers of our built environment. His ability to elicit poetry from the ordinary and present the extraordinary in the mundane makes him a distinctive force in the field of architectural photography. Michael Nguyen's photographs are an inspiring testament to the profound beauty that lies within the structures that characterize our lives.
Art in Public Spaces “The windows for the exhibition are literally by the roadside - because the notorious Torstraße is the main road linking East and West Berlin and Tucholskystraße connects Wedding with Mitte. As always, art flourishes by the roadside” (Dr. Phil. Lily Fürstenow)
