Architectural Photography

The art of reinterpreting the ordinary

You live in them. You cross them. You climb up and down or on them. You look out of them. You walk through them. However, houses, bridges, stairs, windows and doors can be much more than just objects of everyday use. The genre of architectural photography offers so much, which makes the hearts of those beat faster, who love clear lines and refined picture composition. Often parallels to the abstract are recognizable – and in a minimalist manner, simplicity becomes art.

Ode to Berlin

Photography from the city by the river Spree

The Berliners are unfriendly and inconsiderate, gruff and self-opinionated, Berlin is repulsive, loud, dirty and grey, construction works and blocked streets wherever you go. But I feel sorry for those who can’t live here.

Pyongyang's Arirang Mass Games

The Grand Arirang Mass Games in Pyongyang, North Korea, are an artistic and gymnastics festival held annually from early August to early September. The name “Arirang” is a reference to a local folk song, considered by many to be the unofficial national anthem of Korea. It tells the story of a young couple, torn apart by an evil landlord. In the context of the games, this is an obvious reference to the division of Korea into a Southern and a Northern Korean nation.
