The Room Portraits by Menno Aden allow one to see various rooms in a Berlin house from an unorthodox view, a bird's-eye-perspective.

This series by talented German Photographer and artist Menno Aden provides a point of view quite uncommon to us -- the view from a ceiling. Through this aerial photoshoot, familiar rooms and living environments become altogether unfamiliar and their components become more interesting and eye-catching.

This collection of room portraiture feature rooms such as bars, supermarkets, car parks, classrooms and apartments; all of which seem familiar from ground level, but lose their easy recognition with the change in angle. Aden's work mixes things up and gives viewers an unfamiliar interpretation, specifically from a high altitude perspective. In order to capture each portrait, a camera was positioned in the center of the ceiling that appears to deflate and reduce the room to abstracted and flat shapes.
