Farbraum by Nick Frank
“Farbraum” series by Nick Frank offers evidence that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. Everyday objects perceived as ugly by society are suddenly moved into a new light by extracting colors – and, even more, by leaching and overlapping colored accents of the motif it gains an additional dimension.
The color stripes with the isolated main color and four secondary colors of the image finally show a greater variance within the image: the variance of depth. Objects turn tangible and vivid.
“What is beauty? A rusty street lamp which has not lit up a road in a while. Buildings made out of prefabricated concrete in the middle of nowhere. Faded drainage pipes covered with rust and dust.”
After being responsible for the visual presentation of advertising campaigns over many years, Nick Frank switched sides in 2010 to continue to express his ideas in his own pictures. With this change, the Munich born photographer, marked a strong start in a new direction. His photographs can be found in numerous publications today and commissions from global cities as Vienna, Paris or Vancouver.
