Stephanus Meyer: Beauty in the Banal

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Stephanus Meyer in Chelsea International Photography Competition . The exhibition opens January 27, 2018 and runs through February 7,  2018 with an opening reception on Thursday, February 1 from 6-8 pm.

Stephanus Meyer’s most recent street photography series eloquently captures beauty within the banality of human existence.  Inspired by the everyday experiences of humanity, Meyer aims to immortalize the transient, fleeting moments that comprise how we live our lives. Meyer’s subject matter is at once dynamic and universal; bustling city squares, sparse nighttime boulevards, humming bus stops and crowded cafes are all rendered with glaring clarity and high contrast in light and shadow. Meyer explains: “My camera has taught me to see world and how people live in it in a different light.”
