I stumbled upon Gheedon’s photography blog, Always Arriving, in my WordPress reader last week, and I’m very glad I did! He specializes in street, urban and portrait photography, shot both in his native Berlin and around the world. Although his portraits are incredible, it’s his photography of architectural elements that first caught my eye, so I’d like to focus on that today.

I am really drawn to Gheedon’s way of turning his inanimate subjects into abstracts. His photography reminds me that everything can be reduced to a collection of geometric shapes, and I find his play with light and texture incredibly evocative.

You can follow Gheedon on his website, his blog, and on Twitter, Flickr, and Instagram.

  3. Love it. Thank you for sharing. It really brought it home to me how it really is all about light. Some of the pics at a different time of day would hust be flat. His use of light brings them alive.

  4. Great photos. You hit the nail on the head that their success lies in the photographer’s ability to hone in on the details and frame them in a composition that makes them into really interesting abstracts. I also think the handling of light and shade is superb.

  6. Reblogged this on Always Arriving and commented:
    Donna from the MyOBT Blog contacted me back in October to ask if she could post a blog entry on my non-portrait photography, specifically the photos I had taken of building interiors. She posted the article back in October. I was travelling in India at the time and failed to respond properly then, and somehow it slipped my mind upon my return. Well here then finally, a big thank you to Donna for featuring my photos, and a big shout-out to her wonderful blog.
