Interweaving Architecture and Photography In Rabat’s art deco Cafe Renaissance an old acquaintance, Montacir Laouina, talks with me about Morocco through architecture, photography, and his attempt to navigate one using the other. For Montacir the two are not s like fox coque samsung s10 sushicube8217 mutually exclusive. One helps you understand the other, and vice versa. Photography, an architectural design toolDeconstruct the postcardPhoto: Montacir LaouinaMontacir is coque iphone 6 0 1mm commandokieffer33821 in his sixth and final year of his architecture degree from the National School ofin Rabat. He has used photography to explore the world around him, particularly various aspects of Morocco’s architecture, for roughly the same amount of time. When I ask how he got started in photography, coque iphone 6 with deanfluenza ama coque de basketball iphone 6s commandokieffer31797 coqueiphone133404 Montacir tells me it was simply a matter of filling an unmet need. Being active in the volunteerism community, he final fantasy xiv coque iphone 6 coqueiphone143079 found there was often a need for photographers at events or gatherings. He grabbed his camera and stepped up justice league of america l1444 coque iphone 6 iphone 6s 1coques6siphone1363 to fill bomb proof coque iphone 6 coqueiphone128727 coque iphone 7 plus ideal of sweden the role. His love for photography developed as he was strolling through Morocco’s fabled old medina of Fez, admiring the surrounding architecture. „One place can give you a million possible ways to see it,“ he explains. https://www.aquawood.fr/products/coque-iphone-7-geek-710pascher456 „The sun is coque iphone 6 halo commandokieffer34530 never the same. Colors are never the same.“1 of 8 This is why he returns to the same location, building, street, etc. He’s observing the light and capturing the shadows in an attempt to „exhaust a place and space.“ A single pewdiepie brofist art z4540 iphone 6 plus 6s plus coque goldufoa12921 photo can tell a story, he coque iphone 6 apple silicone rose commandokieffer30721 explains to me, but a series of the same composition coque iphone 6 fcb commandokieffer35929 can give way to a hidden or deeper meaning. It gives the photography oakland athletics logo z5049 iphone 11 pro coque goldufoa12247 coque rose iphone 7 apple a margaritaville jimmy buffett new 2a housse de coussin conceptual idea. https://www.aquawood.fr/products/coque-iphone-11-pro-max-psg-d1600 The scale of the city is changing, Montacir points out. It is no longer walkable. As cities become large and larger, do we lose the details When you see a whole building, you have an overall idea of it. However, a photo allows you to take in the small details. https://www.alpesprobois.fr/products/coque-custodia-cover-fundas-iphone-11-pro-max-5-6-7-8-plus-x-xs-xr-se2020-c26923-moschino-bear-white-ozuna-1-iphone-7-8-case Photography, architecture, and shadowsHis passion for expressing the relation between architecture and photography came to a forefront in the winding streets of the Fez medina, where you can see the way Morocco’s light changes throughout the day. „We think of light as being white, usmc coque iphone 6 coque7iphone14349 but it isn’t. It changes with the seasons. A photo in March won’t be like a photo in September,“ he adds, even if it’s the same exact composition. It was in those narrow alleys he saw the dramatic role shadows play in his observation of the world around him. „Whenever I walk with my friends now, they tell me the shadow on a certain building will interest me,'“ he muses. „Once we visit the building, I tell them about the coque iphone 7 mec function of a wall and they are usually moved by takashi murakami sunflower housse de coussin it. In his work praise of Shadow,“ Montacir notes that Tanizaki iphone 6 coque glitter commandokieffer35229 „raises the question of the shadow as a major element of the aesthetic quest, criticizing modern society saturated with shiny objects. https://www.aquawood.fr/products/coque-iphone-7-selfie-led-714pascher1655 The more we gain in transparency, the more we lose in depth.“ InspirationCollect the flower, its metaphors tech armor coque iphone 6 review coqueiphone132733 and metamorphosesPhoto: Montacir LaouinaMontacir’s inspiration is the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. One quote in particular speaks to him: „Know how to present one’s work in such a way that it is not introduced as the lie of theory but rather the truth of a metaphor.“ Pessoa’s book, „The Book of Disquiet,“ is more of a non book, according to Montacir. It doesn’t follow a traditional path. Nor does it have a specific message. The poet is simply „sharing his way of perceiving space, religions, philosophy, symbols.“ To me, it feels that this is how Montacir expresses himself, and Morocco, through architecture and photography.1 of 4 I ask Montacir if a picture tells a story, if he thinks his photography tells stories. We launch into a lengthy discussion about social media. Photos inundate us on a daily basis. We mindlessly scroll through various newsfeeds absorbing dozens of images. He finds it ironic that social media outlets call them our „stories,“ because in a way they are. However, he does not feel that a photo necessarily has to tell a story. A photograph, he says, „exhibits concepts, it tells the metaphors and metamorphoses so that it can raise and stimulate human consciousness and modify perception.“ People avengers ironman with infinity glove z4709 iphone x xs coque goldufoa2573 don’t really live the lives they are portraying on social media. https://www.alpesprobois.fr/products/coque-iphone-7-antoine-griezmann-715pascher2162 „We exhibit our lives like we live in a movie or an ad,“ he critiques.
