NINA BAND, ABOUT ME.

I began an interest in architecture around 4 years ago during my time at Falmouth University, when I began taking pictures of specific parts of run-down and dated buildings to prove to my audience when taken out of context, mundane constructions can still be seen as beautiful. By breaking down the aspects and elements within the frame it was a way of observing a different kind a beauty, a more minimal one.

In the past I created a series of images called "Pensive Dimensions" which is an abstract vision of architecture, that focuses on the way we perceive shapes and forms within complex spaces. Capturing minimalistic architecture has allowed me to understand and appreciate the simplicity of certain structures. In reaction to my architectural images, I have constructed paper representations that break down the shapes from the original photographs, as an alternative interpretation of the way we see forms. From doing this, my main intention is to challenge my audiences’ perceptions of angles, shapes and perspectives. By constructing images that look identical from the initial encounter, it formulates confusion between the two. However when viewed for longer, details become clearer and the two images become separate.  

From this and with a substantial amount of time away from the camera, I create "Concrete Adaptation" where I decided to remove the original architecture as a sign of importance. I wanted the constructed photograph to take pride of place as a form of artwork that can speak for itself. Within the series, there's a combination of realism and abstraction. Some images containing a three dimensional approach as a way of remembering the original architectural inspiration, where as others have a more minimal aesthetic to keep the audiences' perceptions challenged.  

I am now selling "concrete Adaptation" through the "Buy a Print" page.
