Surreal Beauty in Carsten Güth’s ‘Private Bunker Series’

Carsten Guth's 'Private Bunker Series'

I recently came across these surreal photographs by the German designer Carsten Güth and was totally captivated by them. Entitled Private Bunker Series, the collection of photographs show a variety of residential houses shut-off from the outside world; their windows and doors nowhere to be seen.

There’s a surrealism and a beauty to these images. In many ways they feel claustrophobic – even horrific – but there’s also an elegance to be found in their minimalist forms and their obscure abstractions.

Carsten Güth studied architecture but now lives and works in Stuttgart as a designer. Recently he released this series as a zine and you can check out photographs of it on his blog. More images from the series can also be viewed on his website here.
