Photography with an Architectural Attitude

Photography is a constant struggle between the search for an honest and true documentation of reality and the inevitable interpretation, distortion, and hoped-for enhancement of reality. The search is noble, but the inevitability is likely certain . . . and either goal will, thankfully, remain elusive.
— Richard Hulbert, 2010

Most photographs contain a “subject” within a “setting” or background. The reality is that architecture is both a “subject” and a “setting.” Think about all the images you have taken or will take in the future that contain building exteriors or interiors as the featured subject or as backgrounds to a myriad of other photo subjects.

We photographers like to quote the now famous marketing phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words.” It is the sharing of our thoughts and photographs, regardless of genre, that will inspire each of us to take our own photography to the next level.
