Architecture photography often leans towards the monochrome and long-exposure styles. Clouds stream by overhead as clean black & white lines and strong contrast helped along by heavy editing emphasize the shapes of the buildings in question.
Peter Stewart‘s colorful architecture shots break these rules to beautiful effect.
Bursting with color, they’re mostly captured at night, and often you won’t even realize you’re looking at a building until you’ve digested the whole frame for a beat or two.
Peter classifies these shots as “abstract architecture,” and he’s compiled some of his best into a gallery that we absolutely love.
It’s a geometry lover’s dream, with lines so clean, shapes so distinct, and (more often than not) symmetry so perfect you could cry. The full gallery boasts 22 total shots. Here are 13 of our favorites:
