Towing the Color Line: Matthias Heiderich

2 Apr

Recently I’ve been hesitating to feature certain artists’ work because though I’ve had them in my queue for quite sometime, I suddenly starting seeing their work popping up all over other blog sites.  And the last thing I want to do is seem like a copycat.   But then I said to myself, Artsy Forager, why should you let that stop you from featuring talent that inspires you?  I answered, I shouldn’t.  Simple as that.  Case in point, Berlin photographer Matthias Heiderich.

Heiderich has over ten series of images showcased on his website and any one of them are beautiful enough to be featured.  But I’m currently in love with his most recent series, Spektrum Eins, so this post is full of his signature architectural loveliness.

He is a master at finding the most interesting buildings and composing their intersecting angles and colors into striking, graphic compositions.

His compositions are so simple yet so crisp, his colors so bright and bold.  The architectural forms take a backseat to line, color and shape.  Each photo is a celebration of simplicity.
