Peter Schroyens: Serenity – Alien Cities

Peter Schroyens: Serenity – Alien Cities

MonoVisions Black & White Photo Contest 2021

Serenity reflects my imagination about an alien, architectural world, inspired by science-fiction stories of the early 20th century. Contemporary and modern architecture are detached from their environement and projected into a futuristic universe, entirely stripped of human noise. Surrounded by this visual silence, the buildings of Serenity demand a certain presence, enhanced by stark ligthing effects and deep shadows.

Three years of photographic studies and many more of self-tuition, eventually led Belgium based photographer Peter Schroyens to fine art photography, with architecture and landscape as his favorite themes.
With photography and image editing as his tools, he likes to transform existing places into his personal vision, creating images that transcend reality.
His love for ghoststories, vintage science fiction and the darkness of the gothic scene is clearly visible in his signature style.
In Peter’s mind, his images serve as portals to parallel worlds, showing our world in different realities.
As his main goal, he hopes to evoke a sense of mystery and wonder with the viewer, and to tranfer the feeling he experienced when visiting these places.
