Daniel Mirer: ArchitorSpace_Vacancy

EXHIBITION

In ArchitorSpace_Vacancy photographer Daniel Mirer explores the banality of post-industrial architecture. Mirer will lecture on the images in his exhibition that focus on architectural spaces that convey a sense of absence and alienation. Though many of the environments selected by Mirer evoke a sense of familiarity, his work also suggests an emptiness that often resonates with the viewer.
