An exhibition of the best architectural photography Building Images opens at Sto Werkstatt

Building Images, an exhibition of the best architectural photography worldwide, will open on the 4th of February 2016 at the Sto Werkstatt in Clerkenwell.

The exhibition will showcase the world’s most renowned architectural photographers including overall winner Fernando Guerra as well as short listed entrants Iñigo Bujedo Aguirre, Doublespace (Amanda Large & Younes Bounhar), Christopher Frederick Jones, Laurian Ghinitoiu, Mark Gorton, Ryan Koopmans, Lingfei Tan + Song Han, Mads Mogensen, Tom Roe, Ieva Saudargaitė, Su Shengliang, Grant Smith and Jeremie Souteyrat.

During the World Architecture Festival, a highly acclaimed panel that included Fabrizio Barozzi, Alberto Veiga, Amy Croft, Katy Harris, Nick Hufton, Allan Crow, Ian Moore, Clifford Pearson and Christine Murray judged the awards. In the short-listing process the panel looked beyond the architecture itself, considering the photographers’ merits in composition, light, sense of place, atmosphere and use of scale.

Amy Croft, Curator at Sto Werkstatt said:
‘Photographers are conveyors of the architectural experience and photography has the unique ability to explore and represent architectural space and form, and even to express fundamental architectural concepts. It is our hope that through this exhibition, we will spark a wider debate on the use of imagery in the digital era as well as the importance of visual communication tools within the architecture and design industry.’

Fernando Guerra, Overall Winner of The Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2015 said:
‘I aimed to be as invisible as possible and capture the reality of the project in a way, which could include whoever happens to be present in the place by chance. The photograph illustrates qualities that go beyond the project‘s scale and form, as it uses the presence of people to bring architecture to life. I believe an image like this, obtained by chance and definitely not by major planning give space meaning, creates rhythms that the architects had probably planned for – I was there to help tell the story.’

Lynne Bryant, Co-founder of Arcaid Images, said:
‘Photography has long been the means of communicating architecture. Indeed the earliest known image taken with a camera obscura in the late 1820’s could be said to be architectural, it was from an upstairs window of outbuildings. The medium has changed and be it a bitumen-coated plate or a memory card the technology is only a means to an end. It is the interpretation, the eye and the creativity of the photographer that the Arcaid Images Architectural Photographer of the Year Awards focuses on.’
