Benjamin Antony Monn

*1978 in Munich

Right from the beginning, the focus of Benjamin A. Monn’s photographic work concentrates on the occupation with architectural photography. Monn knowingly defies the genre’s established aim - namely the documentation and identification of buildings – and works on a new definition of architectural photography.

A-Symmetrie

Right from the beginning, the focus of Benjamin A. Monn's photographic work concentrates on the occupation with architectural photography. Monn knowingly defies the genre's established aim - namely the documentation and identification of buildings - and works on a new definition of architectural photography. Since 2002 he is generating several groups of work parallel to each other. The photographer's aim for the series A-SYMMETRIE is the accurate recording of every single building. It focuses on the plain architectural form and the elaboration of linear structures and abstract form criterions. Light/dark contrasts and the switch between light and shadow as well as the metallic shining surfaces are in the main focus of his attention. Because of peoples' absence in order to serve as a measure- scale in the pictures, the buildings must be unhinged out of their functional structure. The architectures in Benjamin Monn's photos are presented in a space-, time- and functionless aesthetics. The design stands for itself.
