"Under Construction" | Photo Essay

This photo series focuses on different construction sites around the city and the people who pass them by on their daily errands. It tries to shed a light on the conversation between man and scene through the different textures and the changing dynamics.

The existence of constructions sites in our reality is a disturbance that forces us to stray off track, and thereby intensifies our connection to our surroundings. This visual (and physical) tension is the perspective I try to capture.

“What is the heart of the town? The soul of the town? Why is a town said to be beautiful and what’s ugly in a town? How do you get to know a town? How do you get to know your town? The town is there. It’s our space, and we have no other. There’s nothing inhuman in a town, unless it’s our own humanity.” (Georges Perec, 1974)
