A photo series that focuses on the impact that people, nature and weather have on urban buildings was itself exposed to people, nature and weather for three weeks when Dutch photographer Maarten Vromans (1975, Rucphen) exhibited almost all the works from his ‘Urban Erosion’ series on the façade of the Paradiso in Amsterdam (NL).

Vromans created reproductions of the original images and pasted them on the poster sites of the world-famous pop temple. They hung, complete with glue smears and air bubbles, on a weathered backdrop of sticker residues, rusty staples and the remnants of previous posters, while the sun, rain and wind of 2021’s summer added layers of erosion to the posters over 21 days. All these elements contributed to form a whole new body of work: Urban Erosion².
