FAÇADES – Architecture of Almere represented by Paul Brouns
Last year I received a commission from the Stadsarchief (city archive) of Almere. The challenge was to visualise the architecture of this town in my particular way.
The result is a photo series of 24 works, that will be exhibited in the large entrance area of the city archive. The exhibition will run from 6 June until 3 Oktober 2019.
On Wednesday June 5, Franc Weerwind the mayor of Almere will officially open the exhibition. Guitarist Rick Kostelijk has composed music, inspired by my work, which he will play during the opening party.
An exhibition catalogue is available for free at the exhibition. It is a full colour booklet that contains all 24 works. Also included is an introduction elaborating on my work, the process and the contents of the commission.

In cooperation with Wonderwall Gallery in India, I had the wonderful opportunity to feature my work in the Sunday Guardian. In this sunday newspaper a full spread article was published in the Features section (page 28-29). The text was written by me and edited by journalist Bhumika Popli.

TAKE A LOOK
From November 15 – December 10, 2018 I am having a solo exhibition of my work in New Delhi, India at Wonderwall. Located in Lado Sarai, New Delhi, Wonderwall is a gallery that is specialised in photographic art.
The Music of Architecture
The exhibition title ‘The Music of Architecture’ refers to my artistic goal to create visual music. In architecture I perceive that music through the rhythm of windows, the changing moods of colour palettes and the play of light on walls. I always strive to visualise these elements as purely as possible in my photographic work.
At Wonderwall you will see a beautiful representative collection of 30 prints, within this theme. If you are able to visit, I invite you to come over and take a look until the 10th of December. I hope you will be enchanted by the experience.
