Facades that Open your Eyes

Facades that Open your Eyes

by Editor Susanne Stoop


Façades make the city, the avenue, the street, the canal, the square. They can be beautiful, ugly, impressive, simple. They can have charisma - friendly, threatening, challenging, stately, colourful, boring, uniform, multiform, funny, and so on. In short, a range of photographic subjects that are eagerly used.

"Complex" by Inge Schuster

There is an abundance of photos to be found at 1X, that show a diversity of façades. To make a choice wasn't easy; there is so much beauty to be seen! I show my choice in a wild whirl. No thematic choice this time! Lots of fun!

Sorry Susanne, I should have thanked you for selecting my image, I obviously didn't read the intro properly, so, THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH! Cheers, Wayne Pearson
Congratulations to all the other excellent photographers selected in this feature, and thank you very much to the curators who selected my image to be included " We All Live In A Yellow Submarine", it is a great thrill! Cheers, Wayne Pearson
The frist photo called "The complex" is certainly computer generated. You can see that the tree is fake and the facade of the building is three times copied... I don't think that this is a photo, more a digital creation...
Could be Imanol, that this image is computer generated. The basics however are photography. Moreover, composites have been made since the beginnings of photography, when there were no computers. There was just the darkroom, where the images were created.
Fantastic work!
Thank you, Heike!
Thanks Massimo!
