[Exhibition] “Formes et Lumière” exhibition by Gitty Darugar

April 20, 2018

Form, function, light, and color are the concerns of architects and their constructive creations. In her photographs of the buildings of the architect Christian de Portzamparc, the photographer Gitty Darugar interprets these physical structures in abstraction – an abstraction of light and color that crystallizes these forms into compositions of unanticipated beauty.

The architect’s three-dimensional elements are, of course, present, but we do not see these «man-made» shapes until Darugar’s magical photographic eye has transformed them into two dimensions. Her architectural photographs demonstrate not only how Architecture and Nature imitate one another – but also how, through Darugar’s work, this dialogue can achieve further creative expression in photography.
