Your Contemporary Architecture



Van der Kooy has an extensive background in architectural photography. His portfolio of contemporary architectural eccentricities delves into the details of design anomalies, drawing attention to uncommon and unfinished elements of building design. In his series of photographs he focusses on human scale, which stems from a documentary tradition; in contrast with other visual storytellers that no longer use a discovered reality as a template, but produce reality in their images.
