Visual Tectonics

PRESENTED ON MAR 21, 2019
IN VANCOUVER @ VOL 48

Photography and architecture are very closely related. It is through photographic images that architecture is widely seen, known and understood. Architects think in space-time dimensions but usually employ 2D media to develop their ideas. Architecture is truly experienced only in real space, time and scale. The photographer’s task is to reverse engineer that reality through acute observation and to construct a relatively small 2D image that begins to evoke the experience of being there.
