Architectural photography is as old as photography itself; its origins date back to the 1830s when pioneers such as Nicéphore Niépce and Henry Fox Talbot experimented with their primitive equipment, which typically required very long exposure times and a painfully slow preparation, picturing buildings as their preferred subject possibly because buildings usually didn’t move during exposure.
Over 170 years have passed since that pioneering age, cameras and imaging technology have changed dramatically, and so did architecture. Yet, the interest in architectural photography has never declined and is as strong in the 2020s as it was one century ago.
That’s one of the reasons we present here some of the most appreciated architectural photographers of the past and present. Different in style, nationality, cultural and professional background, in their diversity they perfectly express the many possible ways to view, feel, and depict architecture. Along with great photographers, we’ll also cover various subjects variously related to architectural photography, from major events and exhibitions to new technological and artistic trends. Stay tuned!
