Fascinated by the interplay between space and objects, Helge Mundt creates works characterized by his exacting gaze. His particular perspective led to the first commissions from the art world in 1981. Starting in 1984, commissions came from ad agencies and magazines who valued the clarity and spatial, atmospheric qualities of his photos, as well as Mundt's skill at — and technical knowledge of — his craft.

Since 1966 Mundt has also been pursuing his own, non-commissioned projects. Because he was fascinated by the construction currently taking place in Berlin — as well as its buildings placed under historical preservation — he carried out the project entitled “Architectural Elements”.
