There is something incredible about Architecture Photography, it can transform the most boring of buildings into an explosion of geometry and perfect symmetry.
And there is no one that does this best than Filip Dujardin, the Belgium photographer created his latest work “impossible architecture” by mixing different photographs of building around ghent, Belgium.
This photomontages seem like actual buildings at first glance but if you look at the details of each photograph long enough you will start seeing the different and impossible angles they take. This collection of architectural photographs shows how the most believable things are those close enough to reality.
Clement Briend is a photographer living and working in Paris, France. He is also a professor of photography at the University of Valenciennes. Briend studied at the Ecole Louis Lumiere and specializes in projecting images onto various surfaces and then taking photographs of the hybrid imagery.
In his series entitled ‘Cambodian Trees‘, Briend projects haunting images of Cambodian spirits and deities onto trees around Phnom Penh. The night time incarnation of these cultural figures, set against the urban environment of the capital city, gives these photos an incredible feel.
28 Jun / Choi + Shine’s “Land Of Giants”
Making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed tower design, we have created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable. These iconic pylon-figures will become monuments in the landscape. Seeing the pylon-figures will become an unforgettable experience, elevating the towers to something more than merely a functional design of necessity.
The pylon-figures can be configured to respond to their environment with appropriate gestures. As the carried electrical lines ascend a hill, the pylon-figures change posture, imitating a climbing person. Over long spans, the pylon-figure stretches to gain increased height, crouches for increased strength or strains under the weight of the wires.
The pylon-figures can also be arranged to create a sense of place through deliberate expression. Subtle alterations in the hands and head combined with repositioning of the main body parts in the x, y and z-axis, allow for a rich variety of expressions. The pylon-figures can be placed in pairs, walking in the same direction or opposite directions, glancing at each other as they pass by or kneeling respectively, head bowed at a town.
Despite the large number of possible forms, each pylon-figure is made from the same major assembled parts (torso, fore arm, upper leg, hand etc.) and uses a library of pre-assembled joints between these parts to create the pylon-figures’ appearance. This design allows for many variations in form and height while the pylon-figures’ cost is kept low through identical production, simple assembly and construction.
Like the statues of Easter Island, it is envisioned that these one hundred and fifty foot tall, modern caryatids will take on a quiet authority, belonging to their landscape yet serving the people, silently transporting electricity across all terrain, day and night, sunshine or snow.
