The scenarios appear to be film location without the cast. "Nightshots scale the picture down to the decisive elements. The pure essentials are perfectly lit", explains photographer Marcus Schwier on his "Nightshots"-series. The Duesseldorf born photographer documents urban lighting-situations at night in differant continents. He explores all possibilities of modern camera technics, but mostly his images tell a tale of how lighting alters the identity of things. How a street of houses turns into a conglomerate of sculptural objects and of how the limits of the documentation of architecture are set anew.
