When it comes to architectural photography, for Pit Brunner, depicting the shell that society chooses to live in means depicting society itself. “Our constructed environment,” he says, “is the exact expression of our society.” In his opinion, there are “many capable photographers as well as architects around”, so when Pit Brunner takes pictures of buildings, he tries to stick to the simple facts – to “What Is”. Calm perspectives, clear-cut pictures taken from a potential observer’s eye level, the houses and their connection to the surroundings, the gaps, the spacial interactions: Pit Brunner sees potential in everything, even in “disturbances” or obstacles like cleaning personnel performing their nal tasks before hand-over, moving boxes, or tools left behind by craftsmen.
