Urban Pretexts is the second UK solo exhibition from Michael Ajerstejn, currently on exhibition at Fiumano Projects.
Michel studied at the internationally renowned “Esmod” school of Art, Fashion and Design in Paris. Contrary to the tendency of most photographers who seek the extraordinary within the ordinary, Michel captures what many would ignore: the familiar within the everyday.
Combining pared down images with bold black and red text, often arranged within in a grid structure, these pieces have a classical feel whilst at the same time carrying subtly powerful commentaries on contemporary society.
Bringing together collective experiences within public spaces (the city) as well as individual imagination within private spaces (the studio), Michel’s photographs represent a very unique perspective on the familiar.
Urban Pretexts will run from 6th – 30th April 2016 at Fiumano Projects.
