Studies of Deco Architecture

These black and white photographs are detailed compositional studies beautifully showcasing the style and extravaganza of deco taken in and around New York. I greatly admire the way the photographer has captured the contrast between the softness of some of the brickwork and statuesque forms, to the geometric high key patterns and structural designs, they delightfully epitomise the glamour and sophistication.

It’s not surprising that I’m so inspired by these images tonight as I am watching Irving Berlin’s classic musical Top Hat staring the indomitable Fred Astaire.
