The imaginary landscapes of Matthias Jung use skilful photomontage to present absurd buildings in familiar landscapes, creating an imagined topography that mystifies and pleases.
The architectural source material he uses is often taken out of a city context and transformed to place it alone in a new landscape. He takes elements of structures and enjambs, and conjoins, dissects and stacks them until he has created an architecture like you would never see in everyday life, foreign and magical. It suggests a different society based on wonder.
The images are well-constructed to the point they could almost be believable documents of far-away lands. It is this believability mixed with surreal scale and composition that makes for such intriguing imagery.
