The urban space is striking. Its tall and mysterious buildings, crowds of anonymous people, an endless sea of concrete are constantly intriguing Clarissa Bonet. ‘City Space’ is a ongoing photographic exploration of the urban environment and her perception of it. She is interested in the physical space of the city and its emotional and psychological impact on the body. ‘These photographs reconstruct mundane events in the city that I have personally experienced or witnessed in public. Stark light, deep shadow and muted color are visual strategies I explore to describe the city’. In a way she uses the city as a stage and transforms the physical space into a psychological one. The images she creates do not represent a commonality of experience but instead provide a personal interpretation of the urban landscape.
