About The Artwork

Original Artwork (Limited Edition): The motif is printed on Hahnemühle fine art baryta 325g paper, motif size 20 x 30 cm, white border 5 cm, outer size 30 x 40 cm, signed and artist stamp on the back. An architectural canvas of light and geometry, this facade is a marvel of contemporary design. The photograph captures the essence of avant-garde architecture in the facade of the Seliger Pater Rupert Mayer church. Renowned architects Andreas Meck and Axel Frühauf have masterfully created a building that is a tribute to crystalline forms, aptly nicknamed ‘God’s ski jump’ due to its distinctive profile. With an astounding 15,000 three-dimensional tiles, each angle offers a unique interplay of light, casting a myriad of reflections that bring the structure to life. This facade is not just a barrier but a dynamic interface, engaging with the sun to produce a spectacle of brilliance and shadow. It stands as a beacon of innovation, transforming the mundane into the sublime. The building was awarded the "international Prize for Sacred Architecture Fondazione Frate Sole" for sacred architecture. The prize is considered the world's highest award for sacred architecture. The jury includes architects Tadao Ando and Cristian Undurraga.

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.
