A Change of Scene
As a New York based architectural photographer, I am photographing buildings in the concrete canyons of a big city most of the time. Occasionally I get away from Gotham. Currently I am in New Hampshire: the White Mountains region. Where ever I am, I photograph the architecture in its settings. My photographs in Northern NH are so disparate from those I shoot in New York. Here, the scenery is dramatically different from that of sprawling and/ or vertical urban environs. This photograph is an example of a lifestyle that typifies why I return to the area again and again. Architecture and its setting truly indicates a society and its functionality. The people of a vicinity create buildings that incorporate natural and man-made embellishments to suit their wants and needs. In NH nature plays a significant role in architectural conceptualization. It is always challenging and stimulating to juxtapose "city and country" in my architectural photography.
