    While walking along Miami’s South Beach one early morning, Polish artist Magda Biernat was struck by the lifeguard houses, which were simultaneously lonely and vibrant, ordinary and unique. Fascinated by typologies and the relationship between natural and man-made landscapes, Biernat walked from one structure to the next, systematically photographing the subjects in the same light, with the same distance, height, camera angle and perspective.
