Lukas Hoffmann observes artefacts: asphalt, scrub, masonry, building façades. In his photographs the human presence is missing. Yet the traces that man has left behind intrigue the eye of the camera: cracks, corrugations, and the overgrowth of plant life that regains ascendancy over the man-made space. Abstract entities with different surfaces —sometimes black and white, sometimes colour—which can become filled with associations, like looking at clouds. The eye goes in search of recognizable forms to orient itself.
