Ties Kweekel (fifth semester – 25 Kilometer von Mailand [25 kilometres from Milan], 2011) has long been fascinated by the name of a small Italian town, which he visited over and over again, getting to know the townscape. This apparently drab locale becomes an object of study for the photographer. Kweekel photographs streets, houses, walls and fences. His pictures condense architecture to a set of planes, surfaces and colour tones. The empty suburban streetscapes remind Kweekel, in the end, of the town where he himself grew up.
