Cairo_buch_51.jpg
Capturing Cairo between the overthrow of Morsi and Mubarak, Bialobrzeski’s images portray daily life in the Egyptian capital at a time of major urban, social and political upheaval and renewal. As silent and tranquil as they are anxious and tense, the images demonstrate Bialobrzeski’s ability to find beauty in chaos. The atmosphere is charged as we, the viewer, are left to contemplate what turn Cairo will take next.

Starting with the simplest, homemade vernacular architecture, based on human proportions and made with found construction materials, my photographs range as far as the exorbitant planned cities of glass, steel, and concrete. Find a selection of images here!

The photographs show houses on the verge of demolition to create space for new appartment house developments.

Informal Arrangements features the interiors of South African shantytown shacks. These photographs speak of the desire to arrange one’s home comfortably using the few means available.

Case Study Homes is actually a sketchbook. The collapse of the Lehman Brothers Bank and the paranoia about a second global economic crisis gave these images another dimension.
Heimat-17.jpg
Having a home means having roots, which is not the same as being rooted to the spot. This is not a project about Germany as homeland per se. Rather, it creates a fixed image of a personalized bit of visual and cultural history.
ParadiseNow-18.jpg
Paradise Now presents fragments of nature—some of them mise en scčne, others untouched by urban growth—on the periphery of the artificially illuminated infrastructure of large Asian cities.
Transition-20.jpg
In new project, I examine the transformation of urban wastelands, many of them located on the peripheries of cities. The photographs were taken in more than twenty-eight cities and fourteen countries.
Bangkok_002.jpg
In Neon Tigers, I merge the seven Asian cities of Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Jakarta, Singapore, and Shenzhen into a virtual megatropolis.

Over a period of three years, I made several journeys to India, where I visited religious sites and explored the mystique and the soul of the Indian subcontinent.
Rungholt-4.jpg
Rungholt was once believed to be the Northern Atlantis. it was submerged, so noone exactly knew where it was or when it had sunk into the sea, only that this has happened. In 1362, long before climate change became a media darling, a vast storm tide swamped Rungholt, something that could not be verified until the 1930s. There are no photographs of Rungholt but an idea of it.
