Abstractions created by photographing details of buildings, I show the viewers the art of the symmetry of the buildings, I think this is the charm of architecture. In my opinion, the charm of architecture is more about symmetry, abstraction and the form of beauty. In order to make this group of photographs look more abstract, I choose the B-W hue and high contrast for these photographs. Also, I made some crop at the end, so that the whole composition has more sense of form. When architecture photography has a sense of form, it will bring much stronger visual impact.
I went to a lot of places and cities to take these photographs, such as San Rafael, Stanford, San Jose and San Francisco. Because I want to show the charm of architecture, so I have to find some of the more unique style buildings or postmodernist style buildings. Eventually I chose Marin Center, Stanford University and Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption. I think the three places’ buildings are what I want because these three places show the charm of the building, the form of beauty, symmetry and sense of abstraction.
