Ed McBain American writer, compared the city with a great woman, an incredibly beautiful in the evening and night, and repulsive in the morning – no makeup and curlers. Anyone who has ever once saw the lights of night metropolis, hardly ever forget this sight, and be able to understand what draws people to it, at first glance, the gathering of soulless concrete boxes and snorting cars. German photographer and designer Christian Stoll gives us that opportunity.
With work and style of Christian Stoll we are already partly familiar – remember his series of epic photo pictures, which might reflect a post-industrial era. A series of “Night City” – is, in principle, inseparable extension of the same ideas. The inspiration for the artist’s set of three metropolitan Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Paris.
Photos and photo pictures, imprint lights of the night city, very, very much. However there is unimportant its subtleties. First, it really requires a lot of successful photo exposure, aperture of the lens matrix, or a very good camera. Secondly, the coincidence of these three conditions with an interesting perspective – a rare thing in general, and panoramic photos of big cities in the glow of lamps and car headlights rarely go without overexposure.
Therefore, large-scale work, like the works of Christian Stoll, in need of a thoughtful process to just a good night photography has become a real photo pictures. Of course, the true artistic qualities of “Night City” is difficult to judge the submitted copies are reduced, but they can to convey the impression.
Panorama night metropolis played by Christian Stoll something like alive card – so clearly distinguished streets and glowing night centers of urban life. Sharma adds photo pictures the horizon, usually a tight veil of the mysterious – and hopelessly overexposed sky the color of fresh milk. From this height are unimportant simply dissolved in the fires of the city at night and see only a single soul inherent in this “great woman”. Looking at the photo pictures, you begin to truly understand the famous phrase “to see Paris and die.”
