  1. It is a very strange list indeed. Much of what is shown looks to me more as architectural fantasy than photography of architecture. Real photography creates memories of a building in a way that we think of an image before we recall the real building as we saw (or imagined) it.

    In addition to Baan and Guerra, it is easy to list 5-10 photographers who are just as significant. Maybe the image selection here was not the best.

    1. Agree with you Boris.Very strange list.For example I ve seen João Morgado’s work and…
      I vê seen much much better work from amateurs…
      One more time people go after the famous guy, who works worse,than the one who have no fame and works way better.
      Just my opion might be wrong or not.


  2. This top ten without Iwan Baan? Serious? The most populair architectural photographer in the world?
