Blue Rectangle (New York City, New York)

Nikola Olic

The 4 brick-red 'waterside plaza' buildings in Manhattan can be used as visual building blocks and rearanged by walking up and down the Hunter's Point Park in Queens, creating an unexpected rectangular slice of the early-morning crisp NYC sky. [] ... Using only a single camera and minimal Photoshopping, Olic creates abstract images that present the metropolis in a new light: “Instead of just taking a photograph, I move around a building and slightly change and adjust the composition,” he says. “The object is manipulated by walking, zooming, checking sun angles, climbing garages…” ...he calls his work “structure photography”, explaining that it “offers a playful reimagining of what urban structures might represent”.
