Architectural Photography

The art of reinterpreting the ordinary

You live in them. You cross them. You climb up and down or on them. You look out of them. You walk through them. However, houses, bridges, stairs, windows and doors can be much more than just objects of everyday use. The genre of architectural photography offers so much, which makes the hearts of those beat faster, who love clear lines and refined picture composition. Often parallels to the abstract are recognizable – and in a minimalist manner, simplicity becomes art.

A while ago, we funded our project with the Barefoot College in Rajasthan. So we thought we’d give you a little update on what happened with the money we donated to India:

The futures of children, who work at a young age, is mapped out from the beginning: working as a child, accepting smaller jobs later, and barely being able to provide for the family as an adult. Thus, poverty carries on from generation to generation. In the Solar Bridge School, children, who work during the day, benefit from a basic education – as they study in the evening, by the light of solar lanterns. The schools are located directly in the villages where the children live and work.
