WINDOWS OF THE WORLD
Windows are considered a vital element of every building, not only to bring it to life but also to give some vitality and personality to it. I find it amusing that a small piece of glass between the interior and exterior of a house gives us the feeling of security and also the way that the house owners can be identified by their choices on their concept of beauty and architecture of the windows, some very flashy and opulent and others very humble.
I assembled the thousands of photographs that I had by cities or regions and created the collections that made the project Windows of the World come to life, the result of the series is a study in urban architecture and aesthetics highlighting the uniqueness of the world’s windows.
In the process of choosing the photographs of the windows I normally don’t pick the most beautiful ones, some are very unique and don’t fit well with others, I try to give to each city or region it’s singularity and identity, and so, it gives us a glimpse into their history and culture. It’s a big evolution from the earliest windows that were only a hole in the wall.
