Frank van der Salm

@ Galerie Helder

Frank van der Salm has been travelling regularly to various Asian cities to record the turbulent economic and spatial developments that are taking place there. The results are visible in panoramic overviews of large-scale architecture and complex infrastructures. The photos are not specifically connected to traceable locations, because they give a more general picture of globally recognizable phenomena, such as growing scale enlargement, more intensive use of space, and the development of complex infrastructures. However, Van der Salm’s work consists of more than pure registration. His photos stimulate us to deliberate on the way in which societies are transforming at a rapid rate, visible in the manner and degree to which living environments are organized.
