Austria, 2019

Capella Granada, located in Finkenburg, Austria, is a gem of a mini chapel, designed by star Swiss architect Mario Botta. I really loved the structure — shaped like a garnet and clad with local larch wood inside, the chapel barely seats ten people. I had hoped to capture an image of the chapel together with its reflection in the adjacent glacial lake. The wind was too strong though to provide the mirror-like surface needed for my planned shot. The brilliant sunshine of the day, however, provided an opportunity for a different and hopefully more original photo. Glacial lakes often appear unnaturally blue because of the reflection of sunlight off so-called “rock flour”, silt in glacial meltwater produced by the friction of glaciers sliding. The intensity of the color is maximized in the summer when the flow of meltwater and silt is at its highest. On the day we were at the lake the sunlight caused the water to look a brilliant blue at certain angles while seeming to turn green around the lake’s edge. The resultant color tones were so saturated that I actually desaturated them slightly in the photo

This painting of Zao's painted in 1966 sold for HKD 98.5 million at the Christie's Auction earlier this year. In retrospect, I think it partly inspired the photo "Tempest" (previous image) that I shot in Austria this summer

Austria, 2019

This scene, shot during a rainstorm, reminded me of a Zao Wou Ki oil painting that I admired at a Christie's auction earlier this year.

Long Island, New York

These fishing nets caught my eye near the end of a long drive from Boston to the Hamptons, so I was pleased to have a chance to go revisit them in the early morning. The shot required a bit of thought and acrobatics as I had to prop my tripod on the roof of the car in order to get enough height to create some separation between the nets and the land mass on the horizon.

Hong Kong, 2019

When shooting architectural photography, I sometimes wonder if the viewpoints I choose are those that the architect intended. As if I am engaged in a game of unlocking the inner logic of the structure which the architect had purposefully designed to be discovered. Or if instead a building is successful precisely because of the range of viewpoints and compositions that it welcomes.
