MARCUS SCHWIER, born 1964 in Duesseldorf, studied at the Duesseldorf Academy of Arts. His work is internationally exhibited, published and awarded and is found in important collections, both public and private. He lives and works in Duesseldorf.

NIGHTSHOTS
The scenarios appear to be film locations without the cast. “Nightshots scale the picture down to the decisive elements. The pure essentials are perfectly lit”, explains photographer Marcus Schwier on his “Nightshots”-series. The Duesseldorf born photographer documents urban lighting-situations at night in North- and South-America. He explores all possibilities of modern camera technics, but mostly his images tell a tale of how lighting alters the identity of things. How a street of houses turns into a conglomerate of sculptural objects and of how the limitations of the documentation of architecture are set anew.
