Lady in Waiting – Frank Hashimoto, Chicago
A pattern in architecture can serve as an aid in designing a building or an entire city. Think of The NY Times Building, the city of Amsterdam, a cobblestone street. If you step back you will find beautifully aesthetic patterns everywhere in the built environment. But zoom in and look closely and you may notice small but wondrous details, the whorl in the head of a screw, a design on a door knocker, a bubbling piece of plaster on the Berlin Wall. For this year’s theme, we asked photographers to tweak their perspective just a little. Whether they took the long view or decided to telescope their focus, we hope they made extraordinary discoveries.
We are grateful to our Managing Principals for supporting this event and giving us the chance to gather in offices around the world to celebrate and admire each other’s work. Our thanks to everyone who participated and especially to our jurors who choose the top submissions.
There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.
