Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

By / Apr 12th, 2015 / , , , /

Nick Frank’s photographs “offer evidence that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. Everyday objects perceived as ugly by society are suddenly moved into a new light by extracting colours”. By singling out an object or building and focussing on it with an accent colour, it makes the form more sculptural. What before was a depressing tower block becomes something you’d quite happily hang on your wall.

Some things are just so pedestrian that it takes someone like Nick to serve up the banal in a way that inspires something new as an onlooker. I often look at ugly buildings and see something others don’t, I’m a fan of brutalism though, so that probably says something about me… I was drawn to these images because I found them beautiful but I guess I would even without the addition of colour.
