German photographer Menno Aden shot a series of pictures of Berlin interiors looking down from the ceiling – a series he calls “Room Portraits”. To create the 'portraits', Aden fastens a camera with a wide-angle lens to the ceiling of a room and takes pictures straight down. Sometimes he uses a monopod or tripod, other times a boom. The camera is often controlled remotely. He takes about 150 pictures from the elevated position before he begins his post-production processing and editing.

“Watching from a higher position on a small space is interesting because I can see someone’s ‘compressed personality,’ ” said Aden to Slate in an interview. With the third dimension removed, the objects in a room seemed as if they are placed on an architect's floor plan.
