Abstract structural photography offers playful re-imagination of what urban structures might represent, both in a real physical sense and a personal experimental one, drawing us closer to the cities we explore by assigning these structures a purpose and meaning that reflects us, our stories, and our histories.
Every photograph in this collection comes with a story, a brief commentary about the structure being photographed, its name, and the location where it was taken.
This in turn offers a quick return to the real world in which the structure exists, of cars, noise, buildings and people, and is intended as a demystifying tool, reminding us that these structures, beautiful or otherwise, are among us on every corner, in cities we visit or cities where we live.
Through interacting with their surroundings, these structure give us the ability to, in essence, paint with architecture. By re-appropriating these urban entities we come across as our colors and brushes, these guerrilla photography efforts help create new intellectual and philosophical visual spaces with equal parts formalism, precisionism and architectural abstraction.
Nikola Olic is a photographer living and working in Dallas, Texas, focusing on architectural photography and abstract structural quotes that reimagine their subjects in playful, dimensionless and disorienting ways. His photography has appeared in various galleries, art events, museums, magazines, newspapers and websites around the world.
