architecture photography

Most architectural images follow a strict aesthetical routine: the building is presented as a clean, autonomous object, without any people interfering. I think its safe to say that nine out of ten architectural photos follow this logic.

Therefore, it is refreshing to encounter something else, for a change. In this case, the renovation of an appartment in the centre of Amsterdam by Jeroen Mensink, of which a new roof-light is a central element, was photographed by photographer Kees Hummel. He staged the place by using people in dramatic or surreal positions. Why? I have no idea. But it surely looks fascinating...
