Photographer Sebastian Weiss Uses Instagram To Capture “The Syntax Of Cities”

A smooth granite church in Iceland and a curvy concrete water tower in Germany are among the architectural structures documented in this series by German photographer Sebastian Weiss.

Under the pseudonym Le Blanc, Weiss uses Instagram to capture details of buildings he finds all around Europe. Some are close-up views while others show whole facades, but the aim of every image is to abstract the architecture from its context. The photographer believes his images are representative of a new kind of architectural photography that has emerged because of the popularity of the social media platform. In this essay, he explains why.
