Clean lines of buildings across the globe have been papped for a photography competition celebrating minimalist architecture.
We And The Color selected a shortlist of 20 winners, with German photographer Matthias Heiderich – who’s no stranger to snapping buildings himself – picking the top three. Georgij Dorofeev’s snap of a grid-patterned façade, set against a bright blue sky, scooped first place.
Trynidada’s photograph of the MAXXI, reflecting its neighbouring buildings, came second. Meanwhile Urban Poetry’s image of a sinuous steel bridge under a single puff of cloud, took third.
‘What I love about this kind of photography is that sometimes it’s hard to tell whether I’m looking at a photograph or a computer-generated image,” says Heiderich. ‘But the subtleties make the difference.’
