dc.description.abstract Architecture is a combination of structure and form. Structure and form with personality. Where did architecture originate? How did it develop and improve over the years? How can photographs help us understand and appreciate architecture? An architectural photograph consists of mood, atmosphere, technique, geometry and a personal point of view. Architecture reveals something of our history and shows how technology improved over time. Every building tells a story of the era in which it was built and why it was built. History that contributes to our understanding of who we are and where we came from. Most of the architecture photographers discussed herein started out as painters or landscape photographers. Architectural photography mainly developed when Paris was structured in the nineteen hundreds, so the area of discussion broadens from the 191 0 onwards. Early photographers did not have the advanced equipment used today and most of them truly relied on "having an eye for a picture " rather than specialized techniques. This is what makes them a great part of photographic history. They helped to establish and shape photography into what it is today. Architectural photography consists of photographing interiors, exteriors and architectural detail. Architectural photography is subsequently discussed in general, but on special emphasis on some photographers famous for their photographic work regarding architecture. en_US
