In Focus: GRIDUO

May 24, 2010

In Focus is Archinect’s new series of features dedicated to profiling the photographers who help make the work of architects look that much better. What has attracted them to architecture? How do they work? What type of equipment do they use? What do they think about seeing their work in blogs?

In this feature, we talk to Turkish photographer team GRIDUO.

Archinect: What is your relationship with architecture? What drew you to architecture, as a photographer?

GRIDUO: We studied visual communication / graphic design. As photographers, what attracts us to architecture are standing still, not capturing moments but having the opportunity to study, explore and improve on angles and framing.

Composition only exists in a two dimensional world. In a three dimensional world there are no boundaries or frames to fix the viewpoint. And in architectural photography we look for the representation of the 3rd dimension in a more open-minded, highly aesthetic graphic way. Our portfolio consists of images that are derived from architecture, but are not necessarily architectural photographs in the usual sense. They are more like architectural imaging, aspirations, ephemera. They derive from a highly subjective approach to photographing the building, form and detail.
