Matthias Heiderich’s “Reflexionen” series

German photographer Matthias Heiderich, who can transform most any city into an utopia of exhilarating angles and impossibly spare vistas, has just released “Reflexionen“, a new series of architectural photographs in which the European sky and swathes of serene blue dominate.

Matthias has a singularly unique eye for evoking a solemn stillness in the vibrant German architecture he photographs and his latest collection is no exception.

His work at first appears deceptively simple, but there are layers of emotion to uncover in his compositions that are complex and unforgettable.

Heiderich, who claims to have had no formal training in photography, has taught himself to masterfully extract emptiness from some of the world’s most vivacious urban centers.

In his photographs, he gives us structures in repose, pristine vignettes of line, shape and volume, studies in solitude and desolation.

Matthias Heiderich’s images transform the banality and universality of buildings into a mosaic of geometrical shapes, reconstructing the world we live in into an abstract canvas of lines, patterns, angular compositions, and vibrant colors.
