It’s all about perspective when it comes to geometric shapes.
“Geometry – It is concerned with properties of space that are related with distance, shape, size, and relative position of figures.“
It was not my favourite school subject. I couldn’t tell a tetrahedron from a square pyramid, or a hexagonal pyramid from a hexagonal prism – even though I could spell these mysterious words – the usefulness of these shapes made no sense to me.
Then I discovered the angles, shapes and perspectives to be captured through photography. At last the geometric shapes made sense and I could relate.
I went looking for geometry and symmetry wherever I pointed my camera.
From spheres to squares…
From proportions to perspectives in buildings and bridge construction…
In ceilings and walls and up steps or stairs……
I even found a square pyramid or is it tetrahedron?
Geometry in photography has forced me to shape and clarify my own perspectives.
