Axel Hütte is aGerman Photographer. He is known for his sober, clinical look at post-war German architecture, and later for his photographs that examined the uneasy interaction of buildings within the natural environment. His preoccupation with the exploration of landscape continues in a series of photographs taken in Greece and exhibited at the Eleni Koroneou Gallery in Athens.

His photographs rely on the use of compositional and structural devices to create an intense atmosphere that evokes feelings such as solitude and loneliness. His vast expanses of space in the natural environment possess the meditative quality and air of detachment so typical of 19th century German landscape painting. Hütte's unmediated observation is reminiscent of the quasi-scientific objectivity that also characterizes the German naturalist tradition. His direct rendering of the landscape avoids the trappings of emotional excess and entirely refutes the self-conscious pathos of the romantic tradition.

Hütte is part of a generation of German photographers that includes Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, and Andreas Gursky, all of whom have been students of Bernd Becher.
