These photographers enable us; they have saved us (amateurs) the countless hours of traveling, searching, and waiting for ideal weather and perfect light. The work of these keen eyes abstracts, animates, and valorizes everyday structures—grandeur and benign alike. Some of the photographers imbue their images with the massive weight of the concrete and industrial metal of their subjects. Others capture a delicate play of light and shadow or the caustic relationship between man, nature, and the building. They privilege us by pointing to beauty in banality, oddity, reality, and sometimes the imaginary, and remind us to meditate on a good building next time we see one.
