From 1992 to 2002 at the edge of a major German city, Joachim Brohm (born 1955) documented the transformation of an industrial zone characterized by unplanned growth into a modern and futuristic residential and business park. With patience and curiosity, he dedicated himself to this area of backyards, enclosures, piles of materials and, later, to the deserted grounds, the geometrically laid-out streets and the rising new constructions.

During his long-term project Brohm worked meticulously to capture the changes in the urban infra-structure. His is a sober everyday world marked by a huge number of trivial details. The photographs’ finely balanced composition give evidence of the ambiguity in the seemingly familiar and the permanent flow of reality.
