Window dressing

 

 

Window dressing is a journal of images



of shop windows from the Netherlands,



France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and



the United States.

 


In shop windows people present their



products and businesses to other people.



In many cases, the product are matched



with architecture that was not designed



for such products.


Schierbeek finds these marriages



interesting.


The changing of the facades, the artistry



of display, the unexpected people walking



into the image, the different reflections on



the glass and the ever changing light all



have his attention.


One tends to get lost within these images

.

Inside and outside get fully mixed up pro-



ducing a 3d feel.


In many of his photographs the puzzle



really gets complicated but at the same



time they show a new unforeseen struc-



tural order.


It is remarkable how Schierbeek manages



to create a new spacial order in the



chaotic urban environment.



It is exactly what his steel and glass



sculp-tures are about; reflection and



transparency and thereby creating a new



structure in space.
