Monday Inspiration – Balthazar Korab

“I am an architect with a passion for nature’s lessons and interventions. My images are born out of a deep emotional investment in their subject.” – B. Korab

Instead of featuring my favourite photographers, I thought I old. Combine my love of architecture and that of photography. 

One of my favourite architectural photographers has to be Balthazar Korab.  Through his work, I learned to look at architecture differently. It is not just about the details, it is also about what impacts a building has on it’s surroundings.

Born in 1952, Balthazar Korab was a trained architect who understood early on in his career that photography is an important part of the design process.

He’s often referrer to as one of the photographers that made architects famous. He believed that the interpretation of each building helps shape it’s perception, in a way helping to tell an untold story.

He masterfully captured the romance, moodiness and humanity of even the most austere buildings.

Even though he had worked with many other architects, he his best known for photographing Eero Saarinen buildings whim whom he worked briefly with in the 50s.

As an architectural photographer, he strongly believed that architecture us always entangled in a broader cultural circumstances within which it is created and by which it is transformed. With such belief, it is no surprise to see a lifetime of work filled with images seen from a different perspective than most.
