Dramatic Architecture

“I like to think of the city as a theatre of life. Every day, dramas and comedies are performed on a stage. We are all part of this public performance.” Sebastian Weiss is an architectural photographer who sparks dialogues with buildings. Glass and concrete come together in fluid structures that branch and curve into bright blue skies. Seen from a variety of angles, the exteriors seem to move like bodies – actors to be gazed upon, critiqued and interpreted. The chosen structures range from supermarkets and garages to slick office buildings; however, every building carries the same underlying charisma regardless of its complexity or geographic location. From Lisbon to Beijing, the climates become almost indiscernible – the towers rise upwards as the central subjects. Weiss has won several accolades in recent years, including the IPA International Photography Awards, Px3 Prix de la Photograhie de Paris and the FAPA Fine Art Photography Awards. www.le-blanc.com.
