Hommage to Mies

These bold works document the architectural triumph of Mies.

’’Less is more.’’ Indeed, here the ’less’ frames a space for an imaginative flight into the dignified, thoughtful world of Mies’ modernism, an abstraction of the master’s abstractions. Shot on a 1970’s Pentax 6 x 7 medium format camera, in its framing, composition and light inversion Valentine has married his signature aesthetic with the sculpted, minimal towers to create a brilliant geometric portal effect. A fine reinvention of the International Style.
