Juxtaposition – unexpected combinations of colours, shapes and ideas
For years, my creative work has been focusing on architectural photography. Mostly, the images were black and white; the pictures showed 20th and 21st century buildings. Modern architecture is a world created of stone, steel, and glass. Hence, the images are defined by clear lines, patterns, and shapes, by a “cold” atmosphere. By using some elements of the Chiaroscuro style this effect is enhanced even further.
You’ll hardly find any fine art architectural photography showing people – mine included. But still, those buildings are created by human beings, and even more important, they are built to be used by people.
That’s the initial idea of my all-new series “Juxtaposition”, consisting of the two sub-series “Shape” and “Colour”. I want to create images which have both elements – architecture and portrait.
This project is a cooperation with fellow artist Kypris Athina who is not only a wonderful model but an excellent photographer and make up artist as well. Check out her work – you won’t regret!
My sincere thanks also go to my old friend Ingo Werner. Most of the pics were taken with his fabulous Canon 70-200/2.8 lens. Danke!
I will post the images of the Juxtaposition series on my blog and on various internet and social media platforms. Your comments and likes are hugely appreciated – feel free to share the images (and don’t forget to name the source …). So have fun and enjoy!

How do you like this one? I tried to create some fine art work out of a pic of the Aachen Cathedral (a wonderful church, by the way). Usually, I take pics of modern buildings for my work; applying the principles of b/w fine art to an old building (the oldest part dates back to the year 800) proved to be quite a challenging task.
Please tell me if you like this or not – I’m very interested to hear your opinion.
Third picture of part II of my Guillemins Fine Art Project. So far, this is my favourite of the series.
I went to Liège quite a few times, but this was the first time I was able to capture the station from the front left side – until now there used to be some kind of construction site.
Hope you enjoy it, too – every comment, every like is appreciated! Have a nice sunday everybody.
