Walking around Leipzig, Germany, I became interested in how a city’s architecture can impact our sense of belonging to a place. Specifically I was interested in the way light falls on skin differently in different places around the world, not only due to celestial bodies’ angles, but the way it is culturally used through architecture. I became curious in how the same light would have a different impact on different skin types and how that might make a difference on how different ethnicities perceive their place in different locations. The three places captured and examined through this project is Leipzig, Germany, Lagos, Nigeria, and Shanghai, China.
