Swirling Multiple Exposures of Famous Landmarks

Tower Bridge, London


In this series, entitled World Dis Order, Berlin-based photographer Christian Ruhm presents his viewers with a chaotic depiction of many well-known places around the world. He masterfully uses multiple exposures to create a sense of motion in the otherwise imposing and steady structures. The circular tilts and swirls of each photograph redefine each popular attraction in an elegant, painterly fashion, and viewers are challenged to reconsider old places in a whole new context.

From the London Bridge to the Sony Center in Berlin, Ruhm's architectural studies transform stunning landmarks into a whirl of chaos and disorder. The naturally busy areas become a visual blur of excitement in these combinations of multiple exposures, which do not rely on any digital post-processing. Through Ruhm's collective view of the same location, viewers are compelled to consider the beauty of each familiar architectural structure as if they were seeing it for the very first time.
