Stunning Black and White Photography of Global Architecture

Frankfurt, Germany-based photographer Maik Lipp (aka usrdck) has traveled the world, taking some truly stunning images of architecture from each visited city. From New York and Barcelona to Singapore and Hong Kong, Lipp has managed to capture the architectural essence of each city in black and white, from various viewpoints.

The photographer's images present both architectural landmarks and culturally rich building designs from striking perspectives. Many of Lipp's shots seem almost abstract, featuring geometric patterns in repetitive, yet eye-catching arrangements. At times, the carefully adjusted composition makes it difficult to decipher what one is looking at and from what angle. They are like pieces of a larger puzzle that is their situated city.
