Gorgeous, Graphic Photographs of Apartment Buildings

If his portfolio is any indication, Amsterdam-based photographer Wouter Stelwagen is fascinated by the patterns of the universe — and in particular the ones created by modern humanity. His photographs of apartment buildings, which we spotted over at Faith Is Torment, are startlingly graphic, their colors and shapes ringing familiar and futuristic in the same moment. Your brain feels the urge to let the little boxes devolve into simple pretty patterns in washed out colors, and then you remember that each one represents a human life, or the life of a family, and you look again. Click through to see of our favorites from Stelwagen’s work, and then be sure to head on over to his website to see much more.
