17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

De-structures are architectural images that architects do not want to see. Instead of straight lines and perfect proportions, I look for imperfections, abstractions and title destruction in contemporary architecture. I want to show architecture that we usually don't see - looking from afar, not seeing details or feeding on idealized visualizations. Monochrome frames are used to focus attention on sharp, sometimes brutal shapes. In my photographs I try to blur the perspective, and I treat the concepts of vertical and level by convention, forcing the viewer to think - what does he really see?
