Entry Description

This series displays results of my architectural-focused travels in Europe as well as Australia. The selected works have been taken in Spain (Zaragoza, Valencia, Bilbao), Scotland (Glasgow) and Australia (Melbourne). I tend to aim my camera at contemporary architecture buildings with employ unusual shapes, sharp angles and futuristic forms. Those examples tend to try breaking away from physics and common rules while still mainting high quality of aesthetics and construction. 1.

About Photographer

My name is Wojtek Gurak and I am a contemporary architecture photographer. I am based in Warsaw, Poland, but I tend to travel around a lot. I have been taking pictures in Europe, Australia and Asia, and I am constantly working on extending my portfolio with new locations. Most of my architectural photography features distinctive buildings designed by world's most successful architects.
