Buildings, especially the most triumphant ones, are history
in and of themselves. Many are undeniably art, built on the
limitless canvas of sky. I believe that architectural photographs
can be a form of art photography or an historic image. The
buildings themselves also in capture a distinct form of man's
Throughout history, architecture has often been controversial.
The Eiffel tower was originally thought to be a monstrosity,
but now it stands as one of France's most important landmarks.
The Statue of Liberty was a gift that was more like an albatross
for the United States, but now is revered as a symbol of freedom.
The sheer size of architectural projects makes them challenging
photos. Because most are shot from the ground, the visual
is a keystone effect that doesn't give a true perspective
of the building and its size. Aerial photos can serve to capture
the buildings more similar to the mind's eye that designed
them. Also with aerial photography, massive structures can
be captured on a single image, with a more true representation
of the whole object.
