Alan Karchmer: The Architect's Photographer



Any prominent work of architecture is likely to be seen more widely through photographs than in person.

Sundays, Fridays, Saturdays, Now - Jun 05, 2022.

These images have a profound influence on how a given building is perceived. A professional architectural photographer plays an important role in interpreting the designer's work, making critical decisions about which aspects of the building to emphasize and which to suppress or even exclude.

When widely disseminated, professional photographs help to shape public impressions of the building's architectural character. An extraordinary image of an iconic building may assume iconic status in its own right.

Photographer Alan Karchmer has risen to prominence in his field thanks to his skill in conveying architects' ideas and intentions. Having earned a Master of Architecture himself, Karchmer uses his knowledge of the design process, coupled with his own artistic vision, to express the essence of a building. He is, quintessentially, The Architects' Photographer.
