About Sebastian Weiss

Sebastian Weiss works as an architectural photographer and designer. Furthermore, he is appointed as a photo columnist for Architectural Digest Germany from the Condé Nast publishing house.

Sebastian is particularly fascinated by the aesthetics of constructions and the details of their shapes. In his eyes, every building has its own architectural language with a totally individual vocabulary. In all of these languages, Sebastian looks for the most beautiful letters and words. He abstracts urban shapes and underlines their clear forms and structures. By breaking the essence of a city down to the substance, he frees buildings from their spatial context and known surroundings. In the end, he is able to model a new uniqueness of shapes with his pictures.

He studied at the Technical University of Dresden and at the University of the Arts (Universität der Künste - UdK) in Berlin.
