Thomas Struth

German photographer, Thomas Struth, explores urban spaces mostly without people. His compositions are usually the same but different. Architecture almost symmetrical on both sides of the empty road which vanishes at the end.

He chooses a certain time of the day when streets are deserted. Obviously there are hints of humans such as parked cars or rubbish on the floor. Having the photos in black and white also adds to the sense of a place being deserted. Struth does not caption his photos or the location is not identified. The photos speak for themselves.

They seem emotionless but yet still give you a feeling.
