Ben Gowertt, a German photographer, recently lensed a new series that he called 'Temporary Still Life,' due to its inclusion of shots that spotlight calm urban areas that would normally be full of life.

In the shots, various scenes from a construction site are portrayed, with each featuring a minimalist backdrop of cement, which have piles of rubble, dirtied architecture, and building equipment at their forefront.

Due to the contrasts that are present in the construction site, Ben Gowertt is able to focus his lens on particular pieces that stand out, making for minimalist art that speaks to the small beauties that are present in everyday life, even in scenes that signify destruction and disarray.
