Götz Diergarten (b. 1972 in Mannheim) examines in his typological series the ordinary architecture: German façades, French beach cabanas and British bathing architecture. In the tradition of the Becher School have his work a conceptual rigor and documentary objectivity. Diergarten originality consists in the fact that he extends this strict approach to the dimension of color. In the photographs of the standardized type of beach huts, it is the color that gives the original and unique expression. In the Metropolis series to materials and patterns of corridors, tunnels and platforms transform into abstract color spaces and surfaces and show a nearby American color photography of William Eggleston or Stephen Shore.
