Bildbauten by Philipp Schaerer

Although these images are the work of photographer Philipp Schaerer, none of them are actual photographs. Instead, these are renderings of fictional architecture to point out how very tricky photography can really be.  In Philipp’s own words “[The series] deals with the effect and the claim to credibility of images of architecture that appear to be photographs. It further questions the medium ‘photograph’ as a documentary piece of evidence depicting reality.” Remind anyone else of Filip Dujardin?

But I wish these image were of something real because they look amazing: confinement and calm instead of being frantic or taken at overly-dramatic angles. Philipp is quite the rendering champ, having created numerous renderings for Herzog & DeMeuron.
