In this segment we’re going to talk about
photographing people with architecture. This photograph was taken in New York City and
this is designed by world famous architect Frank Gary. It’s the IAC building which houses
Barry Dillars IAC Group actually. And this photograph was taken by me on top of one of
these concrete structures that you see here. It was taken with a twenty eight millimeter
lens which is a medium wide angle lens. And what I’m trying to do is to show the street
life, in front of the building. So I’ve got a family walking across the street here, a
model type lady walking across the street here, a New York City taxi. And it’s photographed
in black and white and it kind of beckons back to a different era, even though this
building was finished in two thousand seven. Allowing the viewer to create a correlation
or a relationship between, people and architecture, which after all is one of the raison d’etres
for architectures because we as human beings have to use architecture all day every day.
And the corners of the architecture and its relationship with people is a very important
thing in our society. And that’s one of the reasons that I like to take photographs of
architectures because our relationship as people to architecture is a critical part
of everyday life.
