Edition of 5 + 1 AP, number 1 of 5

Alicja Dobrucka celebrates architecture at night-time in the photography of her Nico works. The photographs  were all taken in 2016, when she lived in Tokyo. She takes as her subject both the buildings at night and the characters she meets in her favourite bar, Nico. The juxtaposition of the two presents a world where the inside echoes the outside. The light and shadows of the streets create a calm, eery and magical world full of possibilities. It becomes a stage where the action is about to start.
