Víctor Enrich, architecture photographer from Barcelona, recently finished his new project called NHDK, exploring his own capacity to transform the anodyne tower of the NH Deutscher Kaiser hotel in Munich, Germany in as many ways as possible. He ended up with 88 digitally modified images, as he is also a piano player and piano has 88 keys. The project took Enrich 6 month until it was complitely done.
“The main core of my work relies on 3D software in order to recreate a scene that I previously shot with my camera.
I would say that I steal the geometry of a place via a 2D picture. It can be the slowest “robbery” around, as sometimes this sole fact can take me up to a couple of months, working full time. But of course, it depends on the complexity of each scene.
Once the geometry is created, with as much detail as my patience provides, then it’s all about reproducing the lighting and shading conditions that will lead me to a 100% Computer Generated scene that is almost a clone of the real picture.
The process itself is not complicate, it’s is just accurate and very slow.
In the end, it is about transforming the scene in the way I visualized at the beginning or during the process.” - says Victor.
The result is mesmerizing! Simplicity and dynamic of the piano background perfectly goes along with the sequence of unexpected architectural compositions. All images are available for sale on Enrich’s website.
