When it comes to the architectural features we’ve been publishing on the site, we’ve strived to maintain quality in terms of the visual presentation of these manmade feats. But when we came across the work of Berlin, Germany-based photographer Matthias Heiderich, which predominantly documents a vast array of buildings and other manmade constructions, we were taken aback by the sheer, stunning beauty of it all. Scrolling through the myriad images on Heiderich’s website, the first thing you’ll notice is the clean consistency within his work, whether it’s taken straight forward or at an angle, the lines, shapes, patterns and symmetry the photographer has captured is as captivating as it is simplistic.

What makes all of this even more impressive, aside from the pristine nature in which he photographs architecture, is that Heiderich is all self-taught, having learned the technical basics himself and pulling mostly from exploring the work of other photographers that he’s inspired by. For those that roam around the Flickr sphere, you may recognize the man by either his work, or his Flickr account moniker Heartbeatbox. If you’re new to Heiderich’s work, we urge you to check out his website here–where you’ll find that he already has a couple of published photo books under his name–as well as follow him on Instagram here.
