I came across a remarkable set of photographs yesterday via Twitter. What was photographed was certainly not remarkable – very ordinary rooms – but what made them so was the unusual bird’s eye perspective. According to the Guardian article, photographer Menno Aden has been documenting how young people in Berlin find themselves homeless due to the gentrification of poorer areas, and has won an award for his work.
His work has been described as “abstracting familiar domestic and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models through challenging camera angles.” According to the Guardian, Menno’s work will be on display at the Wandsworth Museum until 14th Sept 2013 in an exhibition entitled Home, My Place in the World. However I cannot see his name on the large list of photographers showing.
Here are some of the photographs from the Guardian:
