Recently we have featured a lot of work of people exploring their surroundings and in particular the built environment. It is only natural to question your surroundings and Marc Llach has chosen to do this with his subject matter with such careful aesthetic precision.
The project is entitled At Minimum, which explores and analyses the aesthetics of the industrial suburbs located around cities. Typically these scenes are void of people and their structures left to speak for themselves. Leaving behind the effect humans have upon creating their surroundings, a sort of parody of an urban environment.
Hit the jump to see the rest of Marc Llach’s series.
“In the aesthetic of these desolated environments we can watch the ferocious control, the power and the influence that the modern society applies on its closest surroundings, in general, and on the human being, in particular.”
Marc’s draws inspiration for the ‘new topographic’ photographers such as Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Stephen Shore and Bernd and Hilla Becher. An influence that can be read from his images, with carefully framed images Marc enjoys organising textures, forms and space through his photographs.
“They are defined by a monotonous aesthetic with childish tones, homogenise textures, inorganic nature and unmoving geometry.”
Marc is currently working as a freelance photographer in Girona, Spain, after specialising in architecture and interior design at the Institute of Photographic Studies of Catalonia (IEFC)
