In today’s Photography 101 course we have to capture the beauty and complexity of architecture.
I couldn’t but share these photos made in Brasilia, the capital city of Brazil. The first is the National Congress and the second is the city Cathedral; both designed by the iconic architect Oscar Niemeyer.
Oscar Niemeyer is considered to be one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture. His exploration of the aesthetic possibilities of reinforced concrete was highly influential in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
He was best known for his design of civic buildings in Brasilia – a planned city that became Brazil’s capital in 1960 – as well as for his collaboration with other architects on the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
