Peter Bialobrzeski: Nail Houses

35,00

The final project rounding off the Habitat trilogy by the eminently successful photographer
Nail houses in China—fascinating proof of the amazing power of the individual

During his travels through China, Peter Bialobrzeski was fascinated by the so-called nail houses. Sur­rounded by tall, newly constructed buildings, these houses have been earmarked for demolition, but their owners resolutely refuse to vacate. In his thought-provoking series the artist photographs these isolated structures, often in the evening hours, when the brightly lit interiors convey the domestic comfort that these homes provide for their owners, despite all the cracks in the walls. Peter Bialobrzeski (* 1961 in Wolfsburg) uses his camera to offer these re­nitent structures moral support.
