Magical Color for the Mundane and Ordinary

In most cities across the world, there are plenty of ordinary buildings that don’t stand out. Paul Eis, a German photographer, thinks these buildings make the perfect canvas. Displayed on his Instagram account, the_architecture_photographer, Eis adds in bright colors, turning these structures into magical places.

“Cities in Germany or Austria, where my images are mainly from, are full of modern architecture,” writes Eis on his website. “But those buildings are often just characterized by shape and held in a monotonous white or gray. The result is a not very interesting, cityscape with a lack of color. I color the buildings to make the architecture more interesting for the viewer or to show how interesting they are already. It should criticize the often very boring housing estates growing everywhere in the cities where the developers take little interest in design.
