From "The Presentness of the Underpredetmined" by Michael Glasmeier:
"Documentation is of lesser concern in Bialobrzeski's photographs of the transitory. He takes his plate camera to the most unlikely places on the planet and uses it to transpose transitional spaces into grandiose visions. He photographs urban desolations as if they were the festival architecture of a modernism seeking to celebrate and represent itself. This contradiction gives rise to images characterized by precise order and compositional density, and thus to a concentrated photographic participation in the diffuse. In a kind of methodological incommensurability, the length of time required to view these pictures stands in complete opposition to the actual time we would be willing to spend in the places themselves. The latter approaches zero, for the irony of the transitory lies in its supposed meaninglessness and anarchistic lack of focus, amenable neither to lingering nor to closer observation"
