Instagram Account We Love: Colorful Architecture Snapshots of Cities


Matthias Heiderich (@massju), a photographer based in Hamburg, Germany, composes pastel-toned architectural snapshots that capture the sculptural, geometric side of cityscapes. The way Heiderich highlights the bend of a banister, the dizzying spiral of a parking garage ramp, or the symmetry of a facade will make you look at your own city differently.
