Architecture and Urban Photography

Architectural and Urban photography is the photographing of buildings, rooms, decor, and similar structures that are both aesthetically pleasing and accurate representations of their subjects.

Throughout the history of photography, buildings have been highly valued photographic subjects, mirroring society’s appreciation for architecture and its cultural significance. We shape our buildings and environments, and in turn, they shape us.

John Ruskin, who was the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, once said, “We require from architecture two kinds of goodness: first, the doing their practical duty well: then that they be graceful and pleasing in doing it.”

As photographers, we try to capture these elements and have our work seen to embody these in art.
