Urban Symmetry – Minimalist Architecture Photography by Zsolt Hlinka

“Urban Symmetry”, a series of minimalist architecture photographs taken by Zsolt Hlinka.

With “Urban Symmetry”, Hungarian photographer Zsolt Hlinka has created a collection of images presenting 11 different buildings on the banks of the river Danube. But that’s not all, he has separated the buildings from the original surroundings in order to put them on a uniform background. This way, Zsolt Hlinka developed the visual effect of a homogeneous space. He cleaned off all information about the building’s neighborhood. The result is a photo series that doesn’t depict the raw reality. Furthermore, none of the houses is presented in its full height. The buildings that are actually surrounded by a hustling life, appear like paintings or sculptures.

Check out all the 11 images below or have a look at Zsolt Hlinka’s website to get further information about the Hungarian photographer and his work.
