Her beautiful work has also appeared in such prestigious publications as Rolling Stone, Bon Appetit, GQ, and Elle. We have taken particular interest in her architectural photography, which is nothing short of stellar. Here’s a few examples:

Haunting Images of Venezuela’s Tower of David

Since the late 1990s, an unfinished Skyscraper in Caracas has served as a unofficial commune for hundreds of impoverished squatters. Transforming the myriad unfinished office spaces into homes, stores, barbershops and small businesses, the residents created their own self-sustained community. This year, the residents were finally forced to evacuate the so-called Tower of David, but not before photographer Jorge Silva captured these haunting images.

Photography Spotlight: Hong Kong by Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze

Hong Kong may be the most vertically-inclined city in the world, with over 7 million residents clustered into 426 square miles. No one has ever captured this vertical density quite so well as French photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze, who took the following images for his new book, Vertical Horizon.

Magnificent Architectural Photography by Pedro E. Guerrero

Architecture in and of itself is an admirable vocation, but it is photography that makes its greatness known to the world. Julius Shulman, of course, has received much acclaim for his architectural photography, but many other magnificent photographers have not received the same deserved recognition for work in the fields of art and architecture. One such photographer is Pedro E. Guerrero, whose photography immortalized the work of greats such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Alexander Calder. Here is a small fraction of his breathtaking portfolio.
