Nick Frank is an autodidact photographer from Germany with an interest in architecture. In his series Mira, he explores urban architecture. Mira is a large shopping centre in Munich that consists of two buildings, forming a new urban square surrounded by restaurants and service units. Frank manages to portray the shopping center in an entirely new way, without tacky take-aways and chain stores. Instead he shows beautiful geometric forms and patterns in striking colours and shapes.
According to Frank, his photography is not about showing reality. It’s is about showing his own personal view. It’s about time, places, moments and the technology that enables him to adapt and tweak pictures until they display what he wants the viewer to see.
