Umbrella Kid is a young artist from Basel. Having won numerous
photography award for his characteristic work, he focuses on minimalism
and simple strongly defined lines. The only colours that interest him in
his work are black and white, and along with his excellent geometry,
they serve his purpose perfectly well bringing out the contrast he wants
to emphasize on. It is the struggle of the young skater against the dry
urban architecture. Using his analog camera as a weapon, he says, he
has to fight time while befriending the light and the shadows.
