Structures and systems of order are the predominant themes of Berlin based artist Menno Aden, known for his cartographic photographic works. Aden's photo series deal topographically and analytically with our built environment.

Tracks and Fields

In compositions of steep vertical formats, landscape emerges as a well-ordered aesthetic system. Paths, hedges, grass strips and walls become continuous bands of colour and structure. The extreme cropping of the photographs works against the usual vastness of landscape and expects the viewer to continue the initially limited picture on his own. As if arranged according to a flat plan, everything fits into a system of order and spatiality is smoothed out in two dimensions.
