As an architectural photographer, I am interested in investigating the unique identity of space in order to reveal its character. I have been inspired by Oscar Niemeyer’s architecture because of his originality, pure aesthetics, graceful curves, expressive details, whiteness, simplicity and harmony of the whole structure. While photographing Niemeyer’s buildings I was immersed in the world of his timeless architecture. I was not concentrated on the realistic architectural object as a whole but I was searching for the characteristics of the space, its atmosphere, and form enriched by light. The rhythms and proportions of white concrete inspired me deeply. The constructed forms appeared to me as sculptures, dignified by light.
