“A photographer can make a building look completely different to what it is in reality. Her viewpoint transforms existing buildings into new forms, changing the perception of the audience to appreciate our landscape as a living sculpture.” Sophie Cown is an architectural photographer whose work is built upon capturing and altering the perception of modern buildings. She is interested in the creative potential of futuristic architecture – how residential or commercial spaces might shape emotional and physical realities in years to come. Her approach focuses on minimal lines and isolating structural curvature. Here, Cown taps into the transformative potential of photography, and the visual “truths” laid out through the composition of an image. She draws attention to built topographies, asymmetries and visual balance and coherence, tapping into a growing curiosity for structural photography.
