Iñaki Bergera, New American Topographics
Size: 16 x 24.5 cm
Language: English / Spanish
A poetic search for North American landscape as shaped by industrial growth and urban life.
Iñaki Bergera’s enthusiasm for modern architecture shines through his entire oeuvre. Form, shape and volume are the key elements of his landscapes, shaped by industrial transformation and urban life.
However, his huge capacity for observation and his sense of astonishment allow him to show details that would otherwise go unnoticed and emphasise the intimate essence of places, as he transforms the most trivial things into something unknown and unexpected.
Bergera’s photographs might be universal, even neutral, but their content clearly speaks of North America in the new millennium. He surprises us with humorous remarks and associative games, showing the beauty of a parking lot, or the expressive strength of a row of mailboxes.
Iñaki Bergera (Vitoria, Spain, 1972) is a Spanish architect, photographer, researcher and professor. His interest in contemporary urban and hybrid landscapes and buildings has lead him to produce an intensive and coherent oeuvre displayed at several solo exhibitions.
