Photographing architecture is to explore, read and decipher these places: a slow and careful way of observing the world. In this series of photographs, the architect and architectural photographer Christian Richters portrays abandoned stairs ... essentially functional-element for vertical connection between different levels of a building, which carries a strong symbolism that exceeds their initial destination.

After completing his studies at the Folkwang School of Art in Essen, Germany, Richter began photographing architecture from the 90s, initially focusing on the cities and historic buildings, but soon began to portray contemporary architecture.
