After graduating from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund, Kevin Krautgartner (b. 1988) has been based in Wuppertal, where he works as a photographer and image editor. His personal works – displayed in the following pages – focus on geometric elements from the evolving landscape, revelling in bold structures set against an immaculate skyline. Fixed, cropped and focused, the resulting photographs offer subjective and orderly representations of buildings from the modern world. Symbols of optimism, work, leisure or, indeed, compelling art forms in their own right, the constructions sit within an arena of contemporary growth – at the centre of architectural tourism. Vivid colours and straight lines are integral to a refreshing portfolio; the images become part of a new visual language circling around urban jungles. www.kevinkrautgartner.com | @kevin_krautgartner.
