02/12/2021The Art in Architecture
Les Forrester
Architecture should be able to excite you, to make you think, although not entirely visual art it’s certainly not record style either, possibly a hybrid. The presentation is a mixture of mono & colour work showing interiors and exteriors of buildings from various locations around Europe giving you ideas and inspiration you can adapt within your photography. There is also a section called ‘the Edit’ showing the transition from RAW to the final image. I think Architecture should contain elements of magic, serenity and mystery.
