|Since the beginning of her photographic career, Trude Lukacsek has concentrated on portraying everyday culture and architecture. Her interest is drawn to simple and often anonymous constructions like shops, coffee-houses, cinemas, the colourful world of fun fairs or buildings connected with swimming and bathing: swimming-pools in cities, at rivers and lakes and the often fragile structures along beaches at the seaside. These 'milieus' seem to stimulate people to an unconstrained way of handling colour and shape.
Trude Lukacsek is fascinated by objects and everyday architecture constructed with the creative energy, the imagination and the disposition of their producers. On photographic expeditions through cities and streets she collects the images of colourful signs and letters, decorations in shop window displays, figures and objects, ornaments and decorations.
In this very fleeting world of everyday-culture, Trude Lukacsek tries to store the traces that people leave on the face of cities and landscapes from the waves of constant change.
