In honor of World Photo Day (August 19th) ArchDaily wanted to thank the photographers who bring to life the projects that we publish every day. So we asked architects to weigh in on the work of some of our most-appreciated architecture photographers. Here, Felipe Assadi writes on behalf of Fernando Alda.

First of all, Alda understands the entire architecture project. Its use, the passage of time, the light, and its integration into the landscape. Only after this he takes his camera and he doesn’t put it down until the project is completely registered, always emphasizing its relation to its context. He’s not interested in forced details nor special effects like posed or over-produced scenes. The projects are captured just as they are. That’s why I like his work.
