Colourful beauty in desolated corners
Sander Meisner is a self-taught photographer living and working in Amsterdam. His photography deals with themes and ideas like public space, abstraction and the passing of time. He mostly photographs overlooked corners of the urban infrastructure, focussing on geometric shapes and lines.
Because his photographs are mostly made at night, he works with extremely long exposure times. By doing so, the artificial light creates shapes and colors which can’t be seen with the naked eye. He transforms grim spaces and sad concrete environments into colourful and interesting shapes.
These works are photographed all around the world, exploring the urban environment in the Netherlands, Germany, UK, Canada, China, Japan and Vietnam.
