Filip Dujardin

Filip Dujardin is a photographer from Belgium who specialises in architectural photography. He takes photographs of contemporary buildings and turns them into non existent and impossible buildings. This in my opinion makes his work mesmerizing, bizarre and interesting to look at. He creates his images by creating a model on the on a computer (he uses Google SketchUp and photoshop) or with cardboard and then he goes out to find suitable buildings.

Most of the work that I have looked at so far has been heavily architectural based, I am not yet sure weather that is the direction I want photographs to go in. I think it would be interesting to present nature or landscape photography in this style. Kawahara Kazuhiko (see previous post) has done a project where he has started to do something with nature but he also incorporates buildings in those images as well.
