Minimalist photographs that pick out the colour, symmetry and patterns of cities

When it comes to picking out the finer details of a city's architecture and street infrastructure, German photographer Matthias Heiderich – featured previously – is someone who never fails to impress with his ongoing series of fine art photography.

Often minimalist, and always colourful, his architectural photographs turn what is normally considered mundane into something beautiful. This particular series captures the architecture, places and scenes of Tokyo, Seoul, Berlin, Leipzig, Lisbon, Milano and Rome.

Looking through the different images, it's difficult to guess where each one was taken, but every shot is so enticing because of its simplicity and elegance. If you're a sucker for photography that plucks out the patterns and symmetry of the world's greatest cities, then you can follow Matthias on Instagram for further inspiration.
