March 26th Hans Wilschut visits the PZI

On Monday, March 26th Hans Wilschut visits the PZI Master Media Design and Communication Department. His presentation is open to all PZI and WdKA students who are interested to attend.

The photographic works by Hans Wilschut are more than mere architectural photography. There is more than form and rhythm in the image. Wilschut is interested in the emotions and stories hidden beneath the urban façades.

The result is unreal and almost abstract, almost like looking at a scale model. The city is reduced to squares and lines, especially in the photographs where Wilschut zooms into a fàçade, where no roof, pavement or horizon can be seen for any anchoring.

Actually, Wilschut creates a form of ad hoc archeology. With his camera, he blows the dust off civilization and shows it to us without the humdrum of daily life. He captures history while it is happening.
