STATEMENT OF WORK - CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY

I present to you some of the most renowned buildings of our generation.

Architectural photography might be considered by some an aseptic documentary process. However, architectural photography becomes art when the photographer engages and shares his particular interpretation of those buildings.

Over many years, I have been privileged to photograph these remarkable structures. I tend to concentrate on their "genius loci", the very essence and nature of these buildings. I enjoy capturing their three-dimensional interplay, by providing a spatial reference and highlighting the breadth and scale of these extraordinary structures.

These outstanding buildings are best understood in their environment, by examining and engaging with their abstraction, their angles, their lines, their materials and their beautiful minimalism. I experiment and pursue that glint of light that brings life and energetically transforms their materials into contrasting elements.

Personally, this approach provides a more challenging and visually appealing experience which I hope you enjoy.
