Focus on Architecture: Story Behind the Photo

We will be highlighting winning photographs from the 2010 Focus on Architecture competition during the next few weeks, along with the story behind the photo. This week’s photo was taken by Danielle Matuch from the rooftop of the Fashion26 hotel in Chelsea and was selected as a winner in the Exteriors category.  The judges liked the water towers — so representative of New York.

I captured the black and white image of the water towers on the roof top of the Fashion 26 Hotel. Thanks to a fellow well-spirited Open House NY visitor that kindly recommended my friend and I look beyond the lobby space and restaurant of the Fashion 26 Hotel, we took the elevator to the public roof top. As soon as we arrived at the roof top level, the vantage point of downtown New York dramatically changed. I used a wide angle lens to capture the vast expanse. The repeating form of the water tower reinforces the fundamental aspect of foreground, middle ground and background and is the uniting factor of the image.
