Matthias Schade was born in 1984 in Berlin, Germany. His latest work is a series of photographs named (un)defined space — an investigation of urban space. An investigation of our living environment.
Schade explains the concept behind the series:
Contrary to the daily natural perception of urban space, my artworks of the (un)defined space series offer a directed and focused view on our surroundings. They invite the beholder to critically and consciously face its environment. It is not about a mere documentation of our environment but rather the chance to question things and to create new experiences.
The young artist has been shortlisted for the Celeste Prize 2011 within the photo, digital graphics category back in November 2011.
I love these very minimal and undefined photographs. Fascinating.
