What's This?

Paul Eis is a talented 18-year-old self taught photographer and architecture student based in Berlin, Germany. Paul photographed contemporary architecture of Berlin and Hamburg and used Photoshop to add bright colors to the buildings and really make them pop. Not only do these bright colors make his photos hum with life, but they also draw attention to the captivating geometrical forms these buildings had been hiding in plain sight. Eis uses Canon EOS 50D camera and colour to highlight the minimalist shapes of these buildings.

My project is not meant to be a critique on modern architecture, but maybe instead on the rise of boring housing estates. Because of the housing market in Berlin, it is hard to understand why companies take so little care in creating good architecture. Maybe it is the mentality of the buyers or just a lack of interest in architecture. I do not know. But it hurts me every time I see new buildings that seem so dull and I know will look ugly in just a few years, especially when their white facades start to get dirty.
