Photographer Captures Perfectly Framed Photos of Subtle Coincidences

When we first stumbled upon fine art photographer Denis Cherim‘s Coincidence Project, we marveled at his ability to keenly observe how natural elements align in interesting ways. As the ongoing project continues to move forward, Cherim has further refined his ability to pick out the delightful, curious—and often unobserved—coincidences that swirl around us daily.

Cherim first conceived the Coincidence Project almost 5 years ago. What began as a 365 diary project transformed into something special. After a year of shooting, the photographer noticed that his personal vision of the world was demonstrating something quite curious. Opening his eyes up to the coincidences that surround us, Cherim is able to keep the project going and is currently completing a residency at the Pier-2 Art Center of Kaohsiung in Taiwan.

“I want people to see that even the things which seem banal or meaningless in our daily life can become extraordinary,” the photographer tells My Modern Met via email. “The coincidences are around us, but we need to be willing to see them. I want to show people new places inside their own cities where they can escape and enjoy like they visit them for the first time.”

Playing with the light and lines of our urban environments isn’t something that many people take the time to do. In fact, Cherim is often met with strange stares as passersby try to decipher why he is photographing something that is conventionally “boring” or “ugly.” By exposing these elements and framing them through his artistry, he forces viewers to reconsider how they examine public spaces.

The fruit of his artistic labor in Taiwan will be exhibited at the end of his residency as the Kaohsiung Coincidence Project. Cherim hopes this will be the start of Coincidence Project iterations in different cities and countries around the world, allowing him to peel back the layers of more global environments.

Denis Cherim’s Coincidence Project is an ongoing fine art photography series where the photographer pulls out the beauty of natural, everyday coincidences that often go unobserved.
