The title of the work forces the eye to take he right measure. For if, when we view a black-and white photography by Lukas Hoffmann, what initially comes to mind is to identify it as an outline drawing of,  perhaps, a path or – on a larger scale- even as the map of an island, it is,  in fact, nothing else than a piece of crumbling plaster or, in the diction of the photographer, a detail view of a wall in “Wand Detail (Red Hook, NYC)” (“2016).
