During his visit to Baku, Azerbaijan, to photograph the Crystal Hall for the Euro Vision Song Contest 2012, Marcus Bredt was fascinated by the contrasts of this surreal-like structure within a city that collide there. He was inspired not only by the hall itself, but also its surrounding environment. Nothing seemed to belong to each other but yet everything was, for better or worse, a unit. Versatile and complex, Baku both polarized and fascinated Bredt. He created these photographs not only to document Crystal Hall, but also to show that while multifaceted interests and cultures can be seen blending here, unobtrusively and silently, they are also destroying themselves in the process. The images were featured in 'The Miracle Baku - Design and Construction of Baku Crystal Hall' published in 2012.
