ARCHITECTURAL COLLECTION, FROM HERE AND ABROAD

Locally from Brisbane. Pulling inspiration from technical drawings (line) and use of light, reflection and placement. Giving a stronger emphasis on the location, the subject and surrounding elements.

King George Square, Brisbane.  Utilising an adjacent building, reflection of the clock tower.

Abroad, from many different parts of Europe. Offering a wealth of opportunity with different and similar architectural styles. Both modern and old.

Flughafen München (Airport Munich).  Everyday in the passenger terminal. Side lighting from the right - sun. And shallow depth of field to draw attention to the subject matter (s). Air hostesses waiting for their departing workplace. Mystery lines of the ceiling lights leading into the endless abyss of the terminal.

Operarn Oslo, Norway . Concert and performance hall Oslo. Firstly, the framing of the large window aperture, mixed purpose, allowing visitors the opportunity to walk (hike) to the roof of the building. Not too dissimilar to a video game - 2D platform game common in the 80’s and 90’s. Such as Duke Nukem. With a final element of texture added, part of the interior space, adding more interest, but framed in symmetry.

Berlin HBF. Berlin Central Station . Despite being a modern building, paying homage to the typical European Train Stations throughout. Vast spanning steel structures, self-supporting.

Bundestag, Berlin . After WW2 and after many revisions with a well-renowned Architectural Firm, the new structure incorporating vast glass louvres, allowing transparency of the ruling government with people of Germany.  Natural light reflecting off of the inner corner structure with angled mirrored glass creating a wonderful effect.

Some of my artwork in print. There's nothing more satisfying than a physical print filling any space. Some places both local and abroad. Soon, Scandinavia.

This year I was determined to visit some new places. I also made an exception a revisited Woods Bagot, Architectural firm right in the city. Mainly because I love their repurposed (and done so in a thoughtful manner) office space and catch up on their latest projects.

My focus being on lines/ light > details. Finding a point of interest, determining the best angle / approach for the photo. And the occasional post edit. One day soon I shall purchase a tilt/shift lens, ideal for tight spots and shooting verticals.
