    Victor Enrich’s 88 Variations on a Building


    German photographer and 3D artist Victor Enrich came up with 88 variations of a building in Munich. His work is a great exercise in creativity.

    He provides a bit more explanation of his work on his Facebook page:

    ….I always try to achieve in my life, and obviously in my works to is to provide a new ( at least to me ) ingredient. Something fresh and distinct, not especially funny or crazy, just different. I truly believe of the power of creation by all means. We humans enjoy an amazing capacity to recreate this world a thousand times in a single day.

    In photographic production this means digital retouching. To the amazing and always exciting of shooting people and places I add 3D stuff on top of it. Other guys call it “3D renderings” or “architectural visualisation, but I somehow don’t like both definitions…

    What I basically do is to replicate real buildings into a 3d virtual scene. A technique whose recipe is based equally on the observation of details, the understanding of volumes, natural and artificial lights and colour tones. The use of patience is crucial in the long and tedious process of replication as it is critical thinking and some unknown source inspiration.

    One could summarize that in my attempt to change architectures, I am really trying to change cities, and from a humanistic point of view, change our common reality, the one that supposedly all of us know and we are accustomed. All this at the service of liberating myself from my inner world for the sake of my mental sanity.
