Architectural photography is one of the most beautiful types of art, and also my favourite. Its goal is to capture the philosophy and essence of a building into a single image- not an easy task at all. However, when done correctly, it looks as if no effort was needed. The greatness of some of the most known buildings of the 20th century, was first brought to light by its photographers. This post is about them, the photographers who helped make architects famous and who helped us understand these buildings without ever having seen many of them.
