From Hoel’s article concerning “The Secret Lives of Buildings” for Fubiz.net:
[Translated from French] Over time and with the expansion of urban areas, the architecture of many cities tends to become uniform. Buildings that once drew attention slowly give way to more uniform constructions, much to the displeasure of photographer Marc Yankus.
The artist expresses his dismay at the lack of originality of new architects sublimating old buildings through his photographs. He virtually eliminates any human presence to better showcase the structures and forms of buildings in the Big Apple. A novel process for unrefined and majestic renderings from his project “The Secret Lives of Buildings.”
