Showcasing her final project at the Free Range Photography exhibition at the Truman Brewery, we caught up with Nina Band who talked about her photography series Pensive Dimensions.
Pensive Dimensions is an abstract vision of architecture, which focuses on the way we perceive shapes and forms within complex spaces. Capturing this minimalistic architecture has allowed Band to understand and appreciate the simplicity of certain structures.
In reaction to Band’s architectural images, she constructs paper reproductions that break down the shapes from the original photographs, as an alternative interpretation to the way we see forms. From doing this, her main intentions are to challenge her audiences’ perceptions of angles, shapes and perspectives. By constructing images that look identical to the initial encounter, it encourages confusion between the two. However when viewed for longer, details become clearer and the two images become separate.
Band has been working alongside architecture for the past year, where she has gained an understanding and an awareness of space around her. She spoke to us of how she is particularly drawn towards dated architecture; another focus is to make her audience see how beautiful these forgotten buildings can be.
