Is this world real? Or is it just all in my head? What if what in my head is all that is true? Or maybe all of it, me, you, this world, is just a dream of a butterfly. Or maybe the world of such a butterfly and our world are intertwined. We also see other versions of ourselves in our deep subconsciousness. There, our pains are perhaps lesser, our lives are perhaps happier. Or maybe not. So most people just go on with their so-called real lives. But we, the dreamers, continue to explore those worlds. In the end, we may not find the truth but certainly something strange and beautiful.

Michael Nguyen roamed various cities in Bavaria during the Corona pandemic. A focus of his works since COVID-19 are urban landscapes as well as urban spaces in different cities. Urban spaces can all enrich a life between buildings. Since Covid-19, social interaction in the Urban landscapes with their spaces has lain fallow. Michael Nguyen conveys this sensitively in his mostly "deserted pictures“. Nguyen enters the motifs of his urban landscapes with a great deal of empathy. He makes the city, urban landscapes and architecture visible and documents them for posterity.
