Irene Kung’s Nocturnal Architecture Photography

By Lauri L. on December 22nd 2012

Irene Kung, a Swiss photographer who lives in Milan turns daytime shots into nocturnal shots, which produce haunting effects:

Irene Kung was born in Switzerland and trained as a painter. Her work has achieved international recognition. And now, in the past few years she has expanded her repertoire to include Photography. Her subjects range from architectural monuments to exotic plant life and Argentinian horses.

The Swiss artist’s photographs have been described as devoid of any sense of the natural world, portraits in which the photographic features emerge bathed in an ethereal, floating world.  Staggering monuments like the Certosa di San Giacomo take on the appearance of an anthill in the context of her black and white images, providing a stark and intriguing effect.

“I love the dark that permits me to illuminate what I like.
Dreaming with my eyes open I can look behind the corner.
When bad reality rises, the dream that saves you also rises.”

– Irene Kung
