Photographs by Angela Broehan.
Peperoni Books, 2012. 68 pp., color illustrations throughout, 8¼x10½".
The places portrayed in Angela Bro¨han's photographs can not be searched for or found. They are real but fleeting, visible only to those who walk without a map and wander off the beaten path. Bro¨han has skilfully transformed her encounters with industrial ensembles, urban perspectives and derelict ambiances in the forgotten corners and fringes of the city into a series of captivating images. Where exactly the photographs were taken is insignificant. People are barely visible and the exact functions of structures and buildings can rarely be discerned. These are singular, autonomous and very urban narratives that are both anywhere and everywhere.
