Roland Fischer focuses our attention directly on a specific entity. In the case of buildings, he fills the frame of his viewfinder with their facades, stripping them of the distracting visual cacophony that normally surrounds them. Isolated so, their vivid colors and dramatic geometries demonstrate a striking formalism and visual punch that call to mind a photographic version of modernist abstract painting.
