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.   

Since 2002 he is generating several groups of work parallel to each other.

Candela

Developed since 2002 the workcomplex CANDELA contains photos, which highlight fragmentary architectural details. Each work out of this series chooses a certain construction detail of one building, but changes the angle of view to such an extent, that it's nearly impossible to infer to the elements' original positioning. The compositions achieve autonomy as far as possible towards the pictured object and therefore ignore a central assumption of the classical architectural photography. With reference to the constructive painting the detailed treatment of colour and form receives priority. In his CANDELA-project Benjamin Monn focuses the change of perspective, which emphasizes the space composition and the constructive form more than a documentary copy of the building.
