“In his debut street photography project, ‘Space Motel,’ Maastricht-based photographer Felix Baumsteiger reinterprets the urban space of Toronto and Niagara Falls, Canada. Both locations, the recent subjects of intensive gentrification and tourism, are predominantly framed as slick, world-class destinations—cities of growth by way of condominiums, boutiques, and bright, gaudy nightlife. Yet Baumsteiger, as an outsider, perceives the interstice of these glamourous locations, focusing on the ordinary, occasionally bizarre fabric between these concentrated points of flashiness and wealth.” (Diana McNally)
