Cultural Photography

Documodern’s approach to architectural photography and design means that we always look for the simple expression and unexpected moments that highlight the skill of the architect as well as the client’s commitment to good design. This is what we mean when we say that a good photograph is knowing where to stand. With our background in architecture, we look to photograph not just the overall architectural event, but also the small but deliberate architectural details that stand out as something that the architect took great care in designing to celebrate the art of building — and for us, the art of architectural photography.

Along with “typical” exterior and interior photography, we are also sensitive to a building’s context in the urban and natural landscape, events and use of the building that highlight its function, the way that night photography can transform architecture into a beacon of transparency and light — and as said, the architectural detail that often makes a big difference. We get you and we got you. We know where to stand.
