International Congress Center Dresden With the curved lines of this building, the architect has recreated the course of the river through the city on whose banks it stands. My idea was to pick up these river bends and amplify them through reflection. The treatment in black and white should allow the viewer to focus on the essential.

Stefan Lindner lives and works in Dresden, Germany. As a graduate engineer for furniture construction, he manufactured furniture in the Bauhaus style for a long time. Their straightness and functionality inspired him as a self-taught photographer since the late 90s to photograph modern architecture. Here it is the clearly structured facades of concrete, steel and glass that inspire him to design the photos in black and white, and in which he also often likes to abstract. In doing so, he tries to find the perspective that emphasizes the uniqueness of the building through detailed planning.
