Photographer Moritz Braun started taking pictures a mere two years ago but fell in love with photography, especially black and white, very quickly.

In his Behind the Lines series of photos, Braun studies lines and symmetry that seem to burst alive to the viewer.

“My lines should not be interpreted as borderlines, more than guidelines,” according to Braun.  ”All those lines are meant to take you on a journey, visually and mentally; you will find the aim of your trip when you follow the lines beyond imagination.”
