Carlo Cafferini (b. 1985) spent his childhood travelling around France, Spain and Portugal with his family, which left lasting memories of uncles armed with analogue cameras. Consequently Cafferini developed a love for photography using a film camera. Swapping the old equipment for the contemporary digital equivalent, Cafferini is now able to savour the intricate details of impressive geometric structures. Influenced by great designers such as Santiago Calatrava, Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry, striking angles, shapes and the artistry present in everyday architecture is captured. Often minimalist in nature, the shots focus on the precise and unassuming constructions that constitute the modern cityscape and often go overlooked by street photographers. The striking images also uncover the intersection between a building and its human inhabitants, reminding the viewer that without residents these creations would not exist. carlocafferini.pixu.com.
