These Black and White Architecture Photos by Alessio Forlano Show the Unseen Perfection of Buildings We Pass on the Daily
Alessio Forlano is the man behind these black and white architecture photos. What makes his work unique is the fact he photographs buildings that look normal for the naked eye.
He does this by showing people from all around the world his unbelievable black and white architecture photos. There are a lot of photographs out there that express how beautiful infrastructure can be in many cases.
These photos mostly are important because they portray something that stands tall right in front of us on a daily basis. Although when it comes to truly seeing the artistic perspective of a structure, in most cases we are prone to become blind and never appreciate it. All with the intention to provoke people’s emotional reactions from a photograph. To show the detailed patterns of a structure thousands of people pass on a daily.
Forlano explains that his series of “emotional arch” comes as a wish for the purpose to spread knowledge about architecture. And also to explain to people what role it really has in our society.
He is very focused on highlighting the geometry of a structure to a point of abstraction. Alessio does this by taking a photograph of only one section of a building. This is so people can just focus on that and appreciate the little details of architecture.
