Arrivals, departures, meetings, the clash of different people… Subway stations are more than just a central location for travelers. In fact, they represent the lively background for everyday life and drama while offering intimate insight: first a heartbreaking farewell, then a joyful welcome: a location that serves as a stage for personal plays. Until the curtain comes down and night falls, when night slowly becomes day, when the sound of voices grows silent, when the frequency of visitors falls below a minimum level… Right then and there, SUBWAYS tell their individual stories that come alive with impressive photographs – creating a scenario that gets under your skin. When dynamics turn into evanescence and silence, you have to capture the moment! Join us on a journey to the subway stations of the world!
The result of Nick Franks Hong Kong & Kowloon trip is called “Concrete Living” and deals specifically with the issue of individuality and attention. Nothing is what it seems at first glance. Tightness that appears about unbearable for Europeans is of different significance in a country with the population of China. Even if it is a small space there can be laughter and crying, suffering and living in general. It’s all a question of culture? It’s more a matter of perspective! Life is born, formed, survived – for generations. Again and again and again!
Discovering whites spaces. This is an ongoing project.

Hardly a time in one’s life is more important and influential than school. First friendships are made on the schoolyard, talents are discovered and young people are prepared for life … Everyone of us has some short stories about that period in our life, no matter what type of school we visited …
What is beauty? A rusty street lamp which has not lit up a road in a while. Buildings made out of prefabricated concrete in the middle of nowhere. Faded drainage pipes covered with rust and dust.
“Farbraum” offers evidence that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. Everyday objects perceived as ugly by society are suddenly moved into a new light by extracting colors – and even more: by leaching and overlapping colored accents of the motif it gains an additional dimension. The color stripes with the isolated main color and four secondary colors of the image finally show a greater variance within the image: the variance of depth. Objects turn tangible and vivid.

3 rooms, kitchen, bathroom ... Uniformed residences and standardized habitats whisper desolation emptiness and monotony at first glance only to reveal a touching concern for individualism and differentiation at second glance. Proof that even the greatest adaptability of human desire for uniqueness and personality can not withstand. An architectural character study.
