density detroit explores a city identity formed by spatial and social aggregation.
in my work the question of identity is always present, whether as an idea of place, as a concept of self or even as a sense of community. within the photographic medium I can shape my own perspective of place and belonging.
I try to analyze the various nested layers of Detroit and the relationship they have with one another. my grasp of the sometimes overwhelming impressions gets clearer through abstraction. it is a balancing act or rather correlation of fiction and realism and a question to our conception of surroundings.
there is a special mood to the streets of Detroit, some kind of absence.
an isolation of form and pattern.
love for the visual guidance to Corine Vermeulen.
