Architectural photography can be broadly considered to encompass views of the exteriors and interiors of domestic, commercial, religious, institutional, and engineering structures, as well as records of the evolution of towns and cities. Its aim may be to create either visual documents or expressive images for artistic, publicity, or propaganda purposes. Depending on format, carefully calculated camera movements and/or the use of special lenses are required, especially to control perspective. In this post I’am showcasing 40 beautiful architectural photos.
