From the AIA Los Angeles
Architectural photographer Luke Gibson shares images of some of his favorite buildings that make Los Angeles a world-class showcase of architecture – from historic to contemporary, day to night, downtown to the beach. In a city overrun with billboards, mini-malls, and cookie-cutter housing , this exhibit of imagery attempts to showcase the beauty that architecture can contribute to the City of Angels. This is the idealized world of this architectural photographer. “Los Angeles is an ever-changing cityscape,” says the LA-based photographer, “and there’s always something new to capture with one’s lens and imagination.”
About the photographer:
Luke’s work is the result of a lifelong interest in both photography and architecture. Growing up, he’d return from family vacations with rolls of film filled with skyscraper and cityscape images. After deciding documenting buildings was a better fit than designing them, Luke studied photography at Santa Monica College, graduating with an Associate Degree.
Meeting architects, hearing their vision and the story of their buildings, and helping share that through imagery, Luke enjoys shooting a diverse range of styles; commercial, residential, hospitality, educational, among others.
The Exhibition will be displayed at the AIA|LA Chapter offices from Tuesday 10/11/11 to Friday 10/28/11 and is open for the public during business hours.
