German photographer Stephan Zirwes is most known for his aerial shots, finding delicate and poetic forms in the most mundane or exciting of environments. His photos are so beautiful. Part of their beauty is that they are shot directly downward. The other part is the subjects of the photos. Hundreds of meters above the ground with a climbing harness, hanging out of an open helicopter, Zirwes composes his graphical abstracting photographs. His work shows patterns, structures, connections, boarders, uniformities and contrasts but also current political and sociocritical themes.
