These black and white photographs show the Jewish Museum in Berlin, Germany – designed by renowned architect Daniel Libeskind. Libeskind’s architectural language is based on architectural themes such as intersecting axis, voids & dead end spaces, as well as plays between darkness and light. All of these are symbolic gestures to provoke visitors to experience what a Jewish life during the 2nd World War was like – moments of seemingly never ending darkness and chaos in contrast with glimmers of hope. One space where this architectural language of conflict and chaos is very apparent is the main staircase, which features a set of concrete beams punching through the void above it, creating a very dynamic, powerful and beautiful composition I wanted to capture.
