Thomas Kellner

Photographer of architecture

The German photographer Thomas Kellner (born 1966, Bonn) ranks among the world’s eminent photographers of architecture. He developed an original method of photographing buildings, achieving an unmistakable form of expression – the buildings in his photographs give the impression of dancing. Kellner totally places on its head the basic impact of classical architecture – its sense of stability, permanence, and order. He picks the world’s (thus far predominantly European) most well known monuments, landmarks, tourist attractions, and symbols, those epitomizing countries or cities. All of them have been photographed thousands of times by tourists, always from much the same angle and spot, from where they can be easily surveyed in their entirety. It is Kellner’s ambition to go beyond this routine way of looking at things.
