Architecture Still Life The Series Project: Bullet Holes
Barcelona Pavilion, Barcelona, Spain.
Architectural photography documents and visualizes immaterial features, it also can be used as a frame for events in the past and present. Photography tends to preserve and reveal the nature of a building at a certain age. â€œBy the 1860s, architectural photography became an appreciated visual medium, and by the middle of the 20th century, architects started cooperating with photographers regularly. Buildings became highly valued subjects of photography, for one reason or another. They display cultural significance, and manifest trends in societies, which is an important matter of photography and its purpose of documentation.â€?

The Series Project: Bullet Holes
The Series Project: Bullet Holes is part of an ongoing series photography project. The project aims as creating collections of photographs of a specific subject. The bullet holes are the subject of this serie. The images were taken from The Egg building in Beirut, Lebanon. The building with its interesting shape acts as a symbol for the city, its people and a memoire of the countryâ€™s Civil War. The project aims at showing the impact of the acts of destruction on structures. It also shows that the only remnants of war are destruction and scars.
