Light and Coloured Verticals, 2016

Hans Peter Rank

Three stacked rows of accordion folds in bold contrasting colors parade across this image like abstracted staircases. The only break in the geometric pattern is a pole, at left, that appears to hold spotlights. What do you think — is it part of the composition, or is it a physical object standing in front? The photographer tells us the image shows a building facade in Munich, painted in a bold minimalist design, but he doesn’t clue us in as to the location of the pole. Whether inside or outside the composition, why is the pole included? Is this perhaps a comment on privacy? On surveillance?
