Malte Brandenburg

The self-taught Berliner photographer Malte Brandenburg explores through this serie entitled « Stacked » post-war Berliner buildings and tower blocks. Playing with symetry and geometric shapes cut out in the blue sky, each of them comes as an experiment where one can see their beauty in Malte Brandenburg eyes. By isolating these architectures, one can see them from a new angle. In the 60’s and 70’s, Berlin architecture got some minimalist vibes now in the eyes of Malte Brandenburg.
