Light and shadow

Posted on Tue, 29 Nov 2011 by midcenturyjo

Photographer Simon Whitbread generously sent over his latest photo shoot. (See me posts on Simon here and here.) A small 2 bedroom house on Sydney’s Northern Beaches sits snugly on a tight block but screens and walls, awnings and orientation provide privacy, shade and cross ventilation. More importantly this Curl-Curl home by Clifton Cole of CplusC Architectural Workshop uses light and shadow to help define spaces, to bring the outside in and to make a small home seem larger. I love the way that Simon’s photography plays with light and shadows to emphasis this design feature. He seems to “get” a building and plays on this in his work. Simon you weren’t an architect in a previous life?

So modern and yet so organic – just stunning. I am headed to Sydney in a few weeks and now more excited than ever!!!!

What beautiful photographs. Amazing understanding of the angles, views and materials! I agree that he totally understands what he is shooting!
Love the transitions from inside to outside spaces!
Thanks for the inspiration.
