For all the magpies among you that need to decorate the squishy brain nest just behind your beaks, flock frantically around these bright beauties! Nick Franks’ architectural photography project Mira got us all a-flutter with excitement as soon as we laid our beady little eyes on it and it seems to get better and better with every viewing. Like Matthias Heiderich Nick’s work takes something relatively humdrum and transforms it into a thing of breathtaking purity.
Mira was shot in Munich and the amazing visuals captured are actually of the back of a very standard looking shopping centre. We’re very glad that Nick ventured beyond the lure of coffee, fridge magnets, tank-tops, and all the other wonderful things available in shopping centres these days because he’s created images of real beauty, effectively utilising angles and light which highlight the spectrum of colours in the best possible way.
