PHOTOGRAPHY_ Architectural Pattern focuses on modern facades. At the boundaries between graphic design and photography, this project invites you to take a new look at chosen facades often considered invasive or degrading. The repetition of horizontal and vertical lines or a single pattern loses the viewer in a world where boundaries disapear. In the middle of such a mass Man no longer seems to exist.



"Hello, My name is Alexander Jacques. I am an Artistic Director, working out of Paris, France. Since 2006, I have chosen to observe the facades of buildings from the world's largest cities with a new eye. We spend all day walking past these buildings without raising our heads to glance at them. They are part of our daily lives, but we do not pay attention to them or we just think they're plain ugly. This project showcases the buildings, but from an different angle."




"I hope you will appreciate these pictures, and that you take the time to peruse these facades. Feel free to send me an email. I'd be happy to talk with you about my work. Do not hesitate either to like my Facebook page where you will find all the latest news from the project and focuses on the best architectural projects in the world. And one last thing, the purpose of the shop is not only mercantile: by purchasing prints, you will help me continue this project by funding trips abroad. Thank you very much in advance for your puchases."  (Alexandre Jacques)
