The annual EyeEm Awards showcase the best photography from unknown and up-and-coming stars in diverse categories, and the finalists for the architecture category for 2017 focus on making structures look abstract and stunning.
Most of the finalists chose to hone in on the minute details of their subjects, distorting the hulking structures to the point where it seems like the viewer is looking at cells through a microscope.
Photographers from all over the world submit their photographs to the contest. The field gets narrowed down to 100 total finalists. The winners from each category will be announced Sept. 16 during a ceremony at Radialsystem V, a breathtaking arts center in Berlin along the Spree River.
The top 100 finalists will be published in a special edition print publication. The grand prize winner receives personal mentorship from an established photographer, as well as new camera equipment to further pursue creative endeavors.
