Zurich Diary by Peter Bialobrzeski | laif
Peter Bialobrzeski travelled to Switzerland to shoot his City Diary of Zurich, this time in winter. About the concept of the city diaries, he says: ''The DIARY series look at the individual city and respond to preconceived ideas in working out a specific identity to that very city I am working in. I am a flaneur, but my gaze is static. I am framing the structure and the complexity of that very space. I observe and record what I find during my travels related to culture and civilization. As an artist, who has realized most of his projects in a context where countries and cities are still in the process of shaping their identities, my interest is not with the sights, the landscape, the events that are usually related to that very place. While I go along the project emerges in its form fuelled by knowledge and intuition. I am interested in the overlooked, things you may find anywhere, which are not so easy to read, but when you look at them in the right way, are loaded with meaning.''
