23. Victor Enrich
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Spanish photographer Victor Enrich has a fantastical approach to architectural photography; Enrich manipulates his own photographs of buildings to forge new theoretical structures full of whimsy and impracticality. However, the charm of Enrich's work lies in its openness to an alternate reality, instead of standing as a reminder of man's corrosive and trying relationship with nature, architecture, and time. Enrich's practice allows room to infuse individual buildings with personalities that make them more like living plants and animals than inanimate buildings. Some of our favorites include the 2010 Tel Aviv Opera House, Medusa Tel Aviv, and Shalom 1 and 2 Tel Aviv.
