Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum / Zaha Hadid by Brad Feinknopf



Brad Feinknopf, a nationally recognized architectural photographer, kindly shared with us his recent photographic work on Zaha Hadid‘s Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum at State University. Known for his traditional, yet cutting edge approach to photography, his quality work here emphasizes the unique exterior and interior spaces of the building created by Hadid’s investigation into the lines of circulation and visual connections. Photographed during the day and night, he also captures its interface between city and campus. Additional images by Feinknopf can be viewed after the break.

Architectural Photographers: Brad Feinknopf

It’s been a while since the last Architecture photographer we featured here in ArchDaily, but we are back presenting one of the most experienced photographers in North America: Brad Feinknof.

As he states, his passion for photographing architecture stems directly from the influence of his grandfather and father, both successful architects practicing in Columbus, Ohio. He has personally been shooting photography for over 20 years, since graduating from Cornell University with his undergraduate degree in Design. Brad went on to spend his post-collegiate years in New York City assisting prominent photographers Richard Avedon, Robert Mapplethorpe, Arnold Newman and Joyce Tenneson. Today, many of the ideals Brad obtained from his New York experience carry over to his clients; — the consistent pursuit of perfection, extreme attention to detail, uncompromised professionalism and the utmost quality in service.

Following his return to Columbus, Brad established feinknopf photography, rapidly growing an established clientele among architectural, engineering and construction firms. In serving these clients, Brad has traveled throughout the shooting projects, many of which have been published in major publications. From the multitude of projects I have shot of the years over 100 have gone on to be AIA award winners.
