Architectural photography that mimics common natural elements

in Inspiration / Photography

Loïc Vendrame is a French amateur photographer based in Lyon, France – but his photographs are far from basic. Calling himself something of a globetrotter, he loves to explore cities in search of architectural subjects to capture, focusing on graphics and colours, as well as different shapes and perspectives.

This particular series, entitled ArchiNature, aims to take the details and angles of contemporary architecture and turn them into what we'd usually expect from common natural elements such as snowflakes, lightning bolts or the crest of a wave.

Speaking of his work, he said: "Through my photographs, I try to change the look of the urban spectator on the elements that surround us everyday. By diverting the work of architects, exploiting banal details, seeking original angles to deconstruct the building, I try to stage architecture, give it life and to convey a message, an emotion."
