While photographing residential interiors or other architectural subjects, I always try to find the unique details that sometimes get overlooked. Often times, it’s easy to spot an interesting detail, but difficult to capture it in an interesting way.
At 47 Park Ave there were many such details. In the mud room there was a nice dark stained oak bench seat. I knew that I wanted to show the contrast between the tile and the bench, but oblique photos were kind of, meh.
Maybe it’s my architectural design background, or my biggest influence Stanley Kubrick, but I love perpendicular views. What I mean, is a view of a subject that is at a right angle to my lens. This way it is easy for the lines to be straight and best exemplifies the linear nature of our constructed environment.
