ARCHITECTURE & CITY
Architecture is the art of how to waste space
There is a special place in my heart for the architecture of Medieval and Early Modern periods: Gothic buildings with their stained-glass windows, renaissance interiors with its masterly crafted furnishings. I enjoy capturing the aesthetics of architecture with my camera in a way that makes me feel the history and even smell it. One can say that I do not like to live in modern world. I feel attached to the grate and graceful architecture, where thousands of details been put in one monumental structure. These incredibly rich structures amuse me.
Architecture is similar to the music, great complex sonata of arched doorways, curved ceilings, columns, stone statues and many details. The Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said the most beautiful and proper thing about the union of those two: “Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music.”
