Epic Gursky-esque Photos of Apartments

Falling Apart is a series by Japanese photographer Yuya Takeda that consists of synthetic photographs of apartment buildings. It’s reminiscent of Andreas Gursky’s sweeping architectural photographs.

You can find the rest of the series over on Takeda’s blog.

    These images give me a headache and a confined feeling.. not at all like Gursky imo other then its the side of a building in the photo.

    It is enough that we see these buildings all over the place in suburbs and inner cities. . . These photos tell us nothing that we do not already take notice of. ALl they do is copy and . . . well, there you have it. Boring.

    These are great. I have attempted to make one the other day, but didn’t work out: don’t want to be posting photos of recognizable people’s living spaces.

    The author did not say that he synthesized the works.

    I miss Sim Tower. Until you mentioned it I didn’t even realize but you’re right.

    Hello! The author speaking here of the work, just thought I’d like to say that in response to this comment, that the blog post’s been given an “update.” And yes, while it did not originally mention they were synthetically generated within the description itself, I had a tag / category tag that placed the work under procedural and synthetic. I mean, that wasn’t honestly not enough so hearing this comment made me say, “It’s time to fix it.” So I did. These works also appeared on Behance and consequently on Photography Served where I wrote a description saying it was synthetic. So yes, thanks. With care and respect. -T.

    Well, Gursky makes a fortune with boring photos so stop the hatin’, bro.

    Those interested in these types of images may also want to look at the work of Michael Wolf, see here http://www.flowersgalleries.com/artists/118-artists/4257-michael-wolf/#/section-work/ and click ‘Architecture of Density’ on the right.

    Michael Wolf did extremely similar work in Hong Kong.
