@muenchmax: Connecting Sweeping Landscapes Through a Melody of Line and Color

A gentle melody echoes across the still, crisp landscapes of German photographer and pianist Maximilian Münch (@muenchmax) and, if you look and listen closely, you can almost hear it. In a gallery as carefully composed as a musical arrangement, the 23-year-old intentionally uses line and color to connect each spectacular vista: rock spurs point toward the horizon in an adjacent image, and treetops melt into a lake’s surface in another. Based in Berlin, but frequently traveling to European destinations and abroad, Max says, “With every picture I put down a small composition on paper, a new note that will somehow lead me to the next — wherever this may be.”
