Sander Meisner's photographs of colorful spaces with complex visual patterns create a sensory overload. Most of the interiors he photographs are made of plastic laminate and are characterized by ephemeral design featuring colorful decorations and asymmetrical shapes typically used in 80's and 90's theaters, cinemas, casinos and similar buildings. 

The interior spaces he photographs stand in stark contrast to his exterior spaces because these are mostly designed around their functionality and have been shaped in concrete and metal.

His exterior views of buildings and the interior spaces however, are all boldy colored semi abstract images of architectural details.

Sander Meisner is a self taught photographer and uses medium and largeformat camera's to make analogue darkroom prints.
