Architecture can be experienced in several ways, from writings to a travel, but so far it has been photography the main medium to transmit this experience. At ArchDaily we’ve had the chance to work with some of the world’s best photographers (amateur and pros), and in this section we present you more about their work and thoughts.
This time we present you Cristobal Palma (@CPalmaPhoto on Twitter, and Facebook), who has been featured several times at ArchDaily with his work that not includes architecture but also urban and documentary photography, which appears in media such as The New York Times, Monocle, Wallpaper, among others.
Back to the “experience”, Cristobal has been experimenting with video, exploring an enhanced experience that allows us to see architecture in a different, dynamic way. Take for example our recent feature about the Clifftop House in Maui by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti, in which the combination of video + text + drawings offers us another experience.

1. When and how did you start photographing architecture?
I started shooting architecture as a student at the Architectural Association and then I learned a bit more about the profession working as an assistant to Sue Barr. After working for Sue I slowly started to work independently for small practices in London and Santiago and for magazines.
