Continuing with our Architectural Photographers series, we now present Fran Parente: Brazilian architect working as an Architectural and Interior Design Photographer, based in Sao Paulo but with works from all over the world and several already published in ArchDaily. 1. When and how did you start photographing architecture? I was working as an intern at Triptyque Architecture and at the end of my architecture course. I always photographed buildings and places during my trips with family and friends but never thought this could end up being my work. During my internship I had the chance to photograph the Colombia building that had just been completed. I say that this was the happening that opened my eyes to architectural photography. In a few months I finished my internship and could dedicate my free time to architectural photography.
