Room Portraits

German photographer, Menno Aden, started a unique series called “Room Portraits”. And yes, his series does reflect its title but presents it through a different perspective – a bird’s eye. Attaching a camera on ceilings of a variety of spaces, Aden’s use of “surveillance” abstracts these rooms.

There are a few things I like about this series. We take a look into someone’s personal space as a two-dimensional plane filled with geometric objects. You are able to point out the shape, size, and structure of the room. I enjoy the exaggerated depth found in rooms with high ceilings as well. Most importantly, you are aware of the type of person’s lifestyle in a different light.
