The Age of Modern Architecture in Qatar
A series of 29 fine art photos on modern architecture in Qatar commissioned by Qatar Tourism, taken at the beginning of 2022, mostly in Qatar’s capital city Doha. What I hope you will see as the series of 29 unfolds in the next weeks, is that there’s a strong connection between the architect’s design and its environmental and cultural context. I’ve tried to celebrate the architect’s design through my interpretation of it in relation to its environment. The tonal composition has been carefully designed to give visual weight to the architectural structures and pronounce their forms, while the material or spatial composition (object and space selection and arrangements) enhances the visual energy of the structures as they are juxtaposed to the serenity of the (back)grounds. A serenity that is inspired by the characteristics of a desert area. All 29 images are processed with the B&W Artisan Pro panel to speed up the process and increase accuracy and consistency.
A work in progress, this subset of Black and White Fine-art photographs of structures in Qatar, are mostly considered to be historic and modern landmarks that have not been part of the series The Age of Modern Architecture in Qatar.
Qatar Skyline Panorama
This is a single photo of the magnificent and ever expanding skyline of the capitol city of Doha in Qatar. Right from the middle you can see the Lusail Plaza Towers, the Katara Towers, both in Lusail and the Pearl. To showcase the details in the image, the separate sections of the photo have been displayed as separate images. This image has been specifically shot and made for very large printing (3.5 meters wide or 11.5 ft or 138 inches is the recommended printing size)
Architecture III - 2009-2012 - Looking Up
2009-2012 – The first series of architectural photographs in this specific style and almost always looking up only. Calling it Fine Art Architecture. It started with some images in 2009 but the actual start when everything came together was in 2010 with The Salk Institute, La Jolla photograph aka Feeding Water To The Ocean in 2010. Ironically, that one was not looking up.
