The abstract treatment is an obvious and common approach to architectural photography, given the interesting shapes, lines, and patterns architecture creates. In one of his recent sets, Los Angeles-based Taylor Luo combines photography, digital art, and a touch of abstract to re-imagine some architectural elements with an “order” that emphasizes their form.
“The Subversion, The Reformation,” Taylor simply wrote in his description for Order, a set of black and white photographs of some curious-looking buildings. Heavily angular and geometric, they look clean, crisp, and futuristic in this minimalist style. The attention to detail to make every line, angle, and shape stand out is particularly noteworthy here, and what most of us would say is the stand-out feature of this body of work.
