‘Building Images’, an annual exhibition of the world’s finest architectural photography worldwide, is now on at the Sto Werkstatt in Clerkenwell, London. The exhibition celebrates the importance of photography in the way we experience and connect with spaces and this year features winning entries from The Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2016.
In the short-listing process the panel was asked to examine the photographer’s interpretation of the architecture captured, exploring nuances of the image’s sense of place, atmosphere and scale. Divided into four categories – each one exploring different architectural qualities and a diverse technical methodology – Building Images showcases a broad range of photographic styles, as well as featuring a diverse set of outstanding architectural forms.
Sto Werkstatt in collaboration with Arcaid Images has sought to examine the skill and creativity of the photographer as well as explore the critical possibilities of the medium through the award’s four categories: Buildings in Use, Exteriors, Interiors, and Sense of Place.
The exhibition, which runs until the 31 March, showcases the work of some of the world’s most renowned architectural photographers including overall winner of The Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2016, Matt Emmett. He said “The subterranean Hornsey Wood Reservoir featured in the photograph was built by the East London Water Works Company in 1868. The time and care they took to build such a beautiful structure is what initially drew me to the subject, this is even more incredible when you consider that it was designed to be filled with water and not viewed by human eyes.”
“In recent years, the reservoir has been used as a filming location for Skyfall, Paddington Bear and Sherlock Holmes and I was fortunate to capture at least some of its appeal on camera.”
