Menno Aden zeichnet sich für diese Fotoserie mit dem Titel Room Portraits verantwortlich. Aufgenommen hat er die Fotos aus 2-dimensionaler Vogelperspektive. Wenn man diese Serie sieht weiß man warum der in Berlin lebenden Künstlers für seine Arbeiten bereits unter anderem mit dem European Award of Architectural Photography ausgezeichnet wurde. Oder findet ihr nicht?

Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream.
