Los Angeles-based photographer Amir Zaki digitally alters Southern California suburban landscapes and architecture into fantastical and impossible architectonic structures. He is invested in rendering architecture sculpturally, creating ineffectual relics. Zaki’s project addresses the problematic of photographically representing the improbable (often towards the misapprehension of the potentially possible), de-spatializing the viewer and tweaking temporality. Zaki characterizes his work as subtle, disorienting and quiet, while committed to the mundane.
