Hi, I am Bente and my consuming focus is photographing architecture and structures within the urban landscape. The essence of
my work is to consider the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, (namely that all things are impermanent, imperfect and incomplete). While this particularly applies to nature, I reference it as a filter for looking at the structural, geometric, regular and inflexible within the urban landscape..
Please visit my projects and portfolio, and don't be shy to drop me a line for a chat, comments or questions.
"Greatness exists in the inconspicuous and overlooked details" Leonard Koren
"Wabi-sabi demotes the role of the intellect and promotes an intuitive feel for life where relationships between people and their environments should be harmonious. By embodying the spirit to remind itself of its own mortality, it can elevate the quality of
human life in a world that is fast losing its spirituality.” Andrew Juniper
