A few weeks ago, during my last trip to Amsterdam, we visited Foam, the photography museum and, amongst plenty of beautiful photographs full of interesting stories there was one that really caught my eye.
I can’t really explain why. It was big, really big, of a bright white colour but still full of different hues, with a lamppost as central axis (I really wondered “what about the rule of thirds?”), all the elements seemed to be floating on air and, besides, a beautiful dalmatian with a red collar that, even being small in the huge photography really popped out through all that whiteness.
Once at home, I digged a little bit more and I discovered the rest of Mark Power‘s work. The series I love the most are all dedicated to document the process and evolution of big construction and engineering projects.
You know, I’m an architect. For me those pictures are like heaven and I really admire how Mark Power can transform a chaotic and dirty construction site into those beautiful pictures. I would really love and enjoy having one of those pieces at home, maybe they’re not really meant as “decorative art” but for me they would be just perfec.
Visit Mark Power‘s website and enjoy his work (it’s not all about construction, I promiss!)
