Corridor photography has a special place in my heart as it is a photography type that never ceases to amaze me. Indeed, I do not know where the end of the corridor will lead or what is its hidden story. It is the element of surprise that mesmerizes me as a photographer. The image appearing on my lens will always be unexpected: it is precisely that feeling I long for when shooting. The light, architecture, color, and design will often lead to a well-hidden but significant detail, which will carry the whole photo scene.
Corridors can not only be found in buildings but also all around a city, in an unknown space, where the lighting varies, according to where one stands. Believe it or not, an eventual surrounding wall or a lost window will impact the nature of corridor photography and will turn it into an unpredictable game of lights, action, and history.
Many questions arise when examining passages: What is the story behind their walls? What secrets do they hide while carrying the weight of the place’s past? Why are they so full of light? Why are some, on the contrary, so blurry, vulnerable, and dark-minded? These questions undoubtedly add to corridors’ undeniable and yet, attractive mystery.
