Kim HøltermandMarch 31st, 2009
Born in Copenhagen in 1977, danish photographer Kim Høltermand portrays desolate cityscapes empty of humans and creates a world that’s very clinical and often eerie and otherworldly. In his pictures, the architecture of Copenhagen inspires science-fictionesque and almost sacred imagery, which is beyond aesthetically pleasing. Semi-abstract, impeccably composed, and with beautifully cool, desaturated colors, Høltermand’s photos capture a sense of melancholy, isolation, and a touch of vaguely 70s-era nostalgia. Primarily an architectural photographer, his photos do what the best non-portrait and non-journalistic photographs do – they isolate portions of our world within their frames and become design. What’s outside the frame is just as important as what’s in.
