“In my pictorial universe I am particularly fascinated by big cities. However, these should not be understood simply as specific cities; they should be seen just as much as an interpretation of the conditions in which modern urban man lives. In the urban space one can read off aspects of the historical, political, cultural, economic and social factors in the city. That is why architecture assumes a central position in my work, since it creates the external framework. Against this background I have created series from European cities such as Rome, Paris, Berlin and Belgrade. China’s radical urbanization made it a must for me to visit the country with the most rapidly expanding cities in the world. The result was Brilliant City.”

About the Artist
Inger Lise Rasmussen is a printmaking artist based in Denmark. “I trained as a visual artist, more specifically as a graphicist. My interest in photography has always existed, but it was not until the beginning of the nineties, when it became possible to work with polymer photogravure*, that I began to work professionally with it. With this rediscovered non-silver technique I could combine the potential of photography with my experience of the graphic printing methods. The interplay of photography and graphic art became a new artistic challenge. – Most of my photographic works have been executed as photogravures on the basis of analog photographs.”
