For the project, Max used a Nikon D850 camera along with the following lenses: 

  • AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR – This ultra wide-angle lens boasts vibration reduction to deliver steady images to both the sensor and viewfinder. The optical design delivers superb resolution and contrast in diverse conditions.
  • AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED – An extreme wide-angle, fast aperture lens for professionals featuring a Nano Crystal coating to reduce the effects of ghost and flare. It delivers edge-to-corner sharpness that can surpass that of equivalent fixed focal-length lenses.
  • AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED – This professional ultra-fast aperture wide-angle lens guarantees outstandingly sharp images, even in low light. Its large maximum aperture also offers a bright viewfinder image, with a Silent Wave Motor for fast, quiet autofocus.
  • AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G - Professional, wide-angle, single-focal-length lens with a fast f/1.4 aperture. It boasts an aspherical lens element for superior resolution and contrast. A robust and reliable performer, its optical performance makes it the ideal option for those photographers who want a hard-working lens.

For the project, Max travelled to Warsaw, Poland where he set out to capture the city's stunning contemporary architecture with the help of professional urban freerunner Benni Grams. Benni was strategically placed in the shots to challenge perspective and create optical illusions.

Commenting on the project, Max Leitner said, "Interesting lines surround us, and I’ve always been compelled by photography’s potential to dissect this environment. Using the lines of contemporary architecture to guide, and sometimes mislead, the viewer enables me to shape the ordinary into a new visual representation. By abstracting and manipulating these lines through composition, you can challenge the viewer’s perception of space. We came to Warsaw to see how far we could push these limits, while doing justice to the magnificent contemporary architecture across the city."
