The New World: Anonymous Places of the 20th Century

Funny how the phrase “The New World” is exactly what comes in mind when seeing Robert G. Achtel and Jens Bambauer’s gorgeous hybrid visual work aptly titled: “The New World”.

As Achtel & Bambauer (Geebird&Bamby) describe the project on their official website:
 "The New World" revisits anonymous places of the 20th century. It is set in a time characterized by the conflict of Modernist and Postmodernist convictions, its influence on later 20th century history, and ultimately, the world we live in today. 

“The New World” consists of two series, so far, and it’s a brilliantly assembled concept/project which combines and transcends through more than one fields of the visual arts world: It bridges gorgeous architectural photography with breathtakingly good graphic design and branding skills and some solid compositing skills, while maintaining a firm grip on an imaginary, yet exemplar, mid-20th century design aesthetic.

Each piece is printed to a limited 100 pieces, and sold through the Geebird&Bamby website mounted/framed and ready to go. The prints are manufactured in partnership with Oschatz GmbH & CO KG, one the leading image production firms in Germany.

(Very ambitiously) Wishlisted!
