AN ALTERNATE VIEW: Rotterdam

Photographer Lukas Korschan Shares An Often Unseen Viewpoint Of Netherlands Port City

July, 2018

From a metro underground station to the renowned Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Berlin-based photographer Lukas Korschan has captured the city of Rotterdam through an unexpected lens. Taking the moments which are often seen as mundane and providing a refreshing new perspective on them, Korschan’s eye is truly unique in the sense.

Patterns, colours and natural formations come alive in the juxtaposed materials which in themselves explain visually Rotterdam’s structure, history and individuality. The geographical location is also emphasised with visible sun and rain (found in the reflection of the outdoor sculpture, a soccer cage, by artist Olaf Nicolai in the Boijmans courtyard). All this through a 3-day visit during Autumn, where various parts of the city were explored and unearthed.

In contrast to the typical touristic imagery often captured, Korschan’s viewpoint provides a new perspective on the world around us, one we can apply to our daily lives anywhere in the world.
