Alexandra Timpau practiced architecture for 10 years before shifting to photography and starting to document the built environment.
Her training as an architect greatly shapes the manner in which she frames her subjects and informs the atmosphere she searches for. Her commissions and personal projects vary in size, location, and aesthetics, ranging from building sites to indulgent villas or large-scale developments.
The drive to photograph architecture as a process, as it begins or ages, gave birth to her project “In Between
”, a series that aims to highlight the complex and ethereal beauty of the building site.
She was selected by Archdaily
as one of 25 emerging architectural photographers in the world and listed by Loop Design Awards
as one of the top 100 most inspiring ones.
The name "Alex Shoots Buildings" was chosen initially as a joke, so please rest assured that no building has been harmed during the many completed photography sessions.
