Abstract Architectural

This series focuses on a specific aspect of the Urban Landscape, exteriors of multiple grouped buildings, mostly commercial, with minimal surrounding context. These compositions intend to transform stark geometries into abstract surfaces revealing new and unexpected perspectives. The mathematical relationships among the buildings, the collisions of lines, the confusions of space and depth, the visual interactions of several structures at once, all are spellbinding. My background as a musician has me interpreting architectural forms as music, full of harmonies, counterpoint, fugue and cross rhythms, all captured in steel, brick, glass and concrete. Often this subject is shot as far back as possible to get the whole object in the frame. My abstractive approach hopes to create a temporary optical illusion of captivating lines and patterns, the image being only part of the world it extends into after the eye leaves the photo. I hope at first you don’t quite know what you are seeing.
