"What else can we do but carry within us all these images of the city, or pre-exisitng architecture and building forms and building materials; the smell of asphalt and car exhaust and rain, and to use our pre-existing reality as a starting point and to build our architecture in pictorial analogies?" - Jacques Herzog
Below are galleries of some architectural photography I've done over the years. Some of the greatest lessons in architecture can be learned from observing the spaces around you wherever you go. The following image galleries consist of photography of cities in general, as well as specific sites. Many of the sites are dilapidated, unused, and forgotten. Their status as abandoned places can offer valuable insight, and perhaps inspire architects. This section of the site is being constantly updated as I photograph various places of interest.
