Keld Helmer-Petersen is a Danish photographer who achieved his international breakthrough in 1948 when he published 122 Farvefotografier/122 Colour Photographs, a collection of experiments with shapes inspired by Albert Renger-Patzsch and the poetic realism of the Neue Sachlichkeit movement. The book brought modernism to Danish photography and earned Helmer-Petersen a grant for a year's study at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1950. As a result, photography became his profession. These pictures come from his Chicago series published in Fragments of a City. I love the architecture of the shapes, how they arrange together. Plus, they do remind me one of my favorite Instagram photographer and IG friend: holmberg__.
