Matthias Heiderich—you might have heard of him. We first debuted the self-taught photographer with his Berlin snaps, then most recently, his work of the UAE. His latest endeavor—Reflexiones—beautifully shines the light on contemporary architecture in Madrid, Santiago de Compostela, Avilés, and Bilbao.
We first highlighted photographer Matthias Heiderich's abstract square snaps of the city of Berlin here and we're back for round two. The self-taught photographer's latest body of work, UAE, documenting the architecture of the United Arab Emirates, contains all of his signature moves—the requisite square crop, precise angling, and a bright, slightly desaturated color palette.
Self-taught photographer Matthias Heiderich has spent the past three years roaming around Berlin, snapping photos with his medium-format film camera and Pentax digital camera. During his "phototrips," usually conducted on bike while listening to electronic and neoclassical music, he keeps an eye out for "lines, patterns, colors, and interesting forms/shapes" and captures what he finds in often abstract and angular compositions. His Berlin is a place of saturated color and deep turquoise sky, of time-stopped buildings and signage. Many of these pieces are available for purchase as prints, and very affordable ones at that.
