Architecture of Absence

Recently I am doing a project 4called Architecture of Absence.  This project is based on historic interiors in Nottingham.  Inspired by German photographer Candida Hofer, I started to do researches and take photos of interiors. I have carefully chosen several places in Nottingham and before I went there I would normally do some researches about the place that I am going to photograph. Through this process I was intrigued by the history and the architectural aesthetics of those interiors and I started to think of the connection between spaces and human activities. Furthermore, I found it really interesting to see how these spaces was transformed by ourselves through a long period of time. I was trying to create a window which can enable people to pay more attention to the construction that they have constructed and all those interiors deserve more attention from the public.
