From the series:
LONELINESS IN THE REALM OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS
Buildings, old and modern. Doors, gates, windows, open or closed. Stairs, up and down. Human, there, not there, but always lonesome. This series of black and white photo artworks by Michael Nguyen uses the contrast of not only things, light and darkness but also of meanings to explore the inner contradiction, struggles and loneliness of human being. Contradictorily all of those is executed in a very calm manner.
Michael Nguyen GERMANY
Michael Nguyen has been living in Munich since 2007 and has dedicated himself entirely to art again since 2018. He is an artist, not a photographer but more a photographic poet or something he himself could not define. He moves away from the mainstream, at the same time blurs genres. Most of the time, he focuses on small, ordinary things but through the subjective lens, give them new perspectives, a new soul. Michael Nguyen's photography is the art of showing more than you can see. Making visible - worshipping the invisible, he walks with the third eye of a wanderer through the visual adventure of life. At the Siena Creatve Photo Awards 2020 his artwork "In the darkest hours" was awarded: Commended in Category Nature & Landscape. In addition to his artistic activities, Michael Nguyen is in Editor-in-chief of the online magazine for photography and art: Tagree. www.tagree.de
Our head is round so that thinking can change direction - „a sentence by the writer and artist Francis Picabia, who inspired me as a young man interested in art and the art scene. Art broadened my perspectives and saved my soul. In the 1980s and 1990s I was a journalist, poet, photographer, cultural organizer and bookseller. After almost two decades, I found my way back to art in the dark times of my life in early 2018. Yes, once again art has saved my soul. Everywhere I go, my eyes and senses are in motion. With my camera I capture little things that we often don't notice in everyday life. I like to observe people and photograph them in everyday situations.“
