About The Artwork

Original Artwork (Limited Edition): The motif is printed on Hahnemühle fine art baryta 325g paper, motif size 30 x 30 cm, signed and artist stamp on the back. The photograph presents a trio of ancient Greek Doric columns, standing in solemn gravity. These architectural giants bear the marks of time on their stone surfaces, each groove telling a story of centuries passed. The columns rise from a sturdy base, their fluted shafts leading the eye upward to the simple yet elegant capitals, supporting the entablature above. They are a testament to the ingenuity and artistry of classical civilizations, serving both a structural and aesthetic purpose. This image, captured in monochrome, accentuates the play of light and shadow, highlighting the texture and the imperfections that make these columns a profound symbol of resilience and enduring strength.

Calmness in Sight “Artistic photography today moves quite differently than it did a few decades ago as a visual force and communicative intervention. This is amid an overflowing stream of images whose production, administration, and dissemination have long since run out of control of conscientious management. After film, television, computers, it is above all the smartphone that has catapulted us into a new visual age. Often, the challenge is to give the eyes an occasion to linger between their unsteady jumps from image to image. Michael Nguyen succeeds excellently in creating such an occasion with his photographs by creating clarity of vision and a challenge of interpretation through reduction and focus.” Prof. Dr. Rainer Funke Founding dean of the Department of Design Potsdam University of Applied Sciences Michael Nguyen is a “publicity shy” (Merkur daily newspaper Munich) photo artist, a photographic poet who moves away from the mainstream, at the same time blurs genres. "Most of the photos could only be taken because Nguyen has a special eye for his surroundings and gives even the mundane a second view." (Süddeutsche Zeitung). In his photography he focuses on architectural details and urban landscapes. “With my architectural photography, I am on the search for the aesthetic qualities of buildings in their urban spatial effect. Above all, I am interested in the visual richness of detail in its compositional diversity and its strangeness. The most unadulterated, neutral documentation of buildings for sales and presentation purposes is not part of my work, nor is the creation of marketable references for architectural firms. Nor are they photographs that depict a building in its ideal state to increase the market value of the building in question. With my very own passion for buildings, I strive, as an artistic architectural photographer, to interpret reality and give a new soul to the appearance of buildings through love, enthusiasm, and desire. In doing so, I deliberately interpret what I photograph subjectively and situationally.
