Creative German photographer from Hamburg.

What in the harbors of the world would be nothing more than a gigantic pyramid of stacked merchandise, turns out, upon closer look, to be a system of individual building blocks. The Hamburg photographer Thomas Eigel has stayed true to his subject of aesthetic abstraction. In an exact 4×4 format, he photographed the front side of overseas containers. The result is astounding: lackluster containers transform into mysterious, quadratic front pieces with all sorts of unique characteristics. Colors, fittings, logos, signs, and other extras tell the story of a trip around the world. One could even say: only the famous racing cars of the 1970s were more stylish.
