Eyes of Concrete Bodies

An interesting new apartment building with a massive fence in front caught my eyes. I wondered: Is living in a big, stylish, modern apartment really different from my living in a modest nest by the Gautinger woods, where I can always see through my windows vast stripes of trees? Of course, people see things through their eyes. The eyes, in turn, see things through the windows. The windows become the eyes. If we look closer, really closer, we see what others see in the reflection of the world IN their eyes. Sometimes darker. Sometimes rosier. Sometimes obstructed by a wall, physical or mental.

Michael Nguyen is a photo artist and documentary photographer living near Munich. “Everywhere I go, my eyes and senses are in motion. With my camera I capture little things that we often don't notice in everyday life. Most of the time, I focus on small, ordinary things but through the subjective lens, I give them new perspectives, a new soul.”
