Stunning Architecture Becomes Graphic Art in a Photographer's New Series

Yep, these are buildings.
We're big fans of architectural photography that takes on the built environment in a new way, lending it a bit of extra visual verve and pointing out things that may have gone entirely unnoticed. So the work of lensman Roland Fischer, who magnifies the world's facades to graphic effect, is a particular treat. Capturing icons like New York City's original Twin Towers in a 1999 snap, along with lesser-known designs like a high school with a colorful facade in Utrecht, the Netherlands, Fischer aims to shed light on the anonymization of architecture in the world's cities: Up close, these buildings could be anywhere, and their facades take on a two-dimensional, graphic art-like flatness that has an undeniable appeal.
