Respect the Architect / Franck Bohbot

Le Bon Marché, © Franck Bohbot

In a single photograph, French photographer Franck Bohbot exposes the essence of each unique architectural masterpiece in a series entitled Respect the Architect that captures a telling moment within a variety of locations throughout Europe. Stylistically, the series embodies a homogeneous composition throughout while simultaneously revealing the unique story of each space. Bohbot embraces quasiperfect symmetry, creating a surreal quality and invoking a sense of curiosity with each image.
