This series on urban landscapes intend to reveal an unusual view of what we could call the ordinary. Reflections and flares from artificial light imprint a cosmopolitan atmosphere on the picture but the overall distortion and brightness brings the element of the doubt: what is it that we are watching?

By looking at the landscape through a textured filter, details get lost. The image softens and there are only two elements left on the frame: light and shapes. The resulting landscape feels unreal. It evokes memories or certain altered state of the mind which makes it difficult to identify the scene. The surreal sense of the images is accentuated with colour manipulation, creating a dynamic and bold set of images.
