For our weekly Instagram series #TheSpaces_Selects, we pick a photographer we admire and grill them about their work.
Here are 12 of our favourites so far – photographers who play with space in unusual ways while taking you on a visual journey through their home cities, communities and public spaces…
Paris-based photographer Nabil Nadifi explores the effects of natural light when shooting spaces and art.
New Yorker Dan Pratt likes to hone in on a single thing when he’s shooting: ‘It can be how light plays across textures, how a colour interacts with its surroundings, or how a geometry might be sinister or playful,’ he says.
Shanghai-based Cathy / LCY is always on the hunt for spaces in which to make ‘new memories’…
Barbican resident Anton Rodriguez captures life inside one of London’s most iconic housing estates.
For Milanese visual arts duo Barbara Ceriani Basilico and Alessandro Mancassola, natural light is the common link between their recurring subjects – abandoned buildings and people at work.
LA photographer Jessica Comingore captures a different side of Hollywood, with negative space and natural light forming cohesive ‘red threads’ through her work.
Chinese photographer Xiao Han will take you on a journey through the streets of Shanghai.
Thomas Høedholt is the art director of Norse Projects. He snaps empty spaces and interiors with a graphic simplicity.
Shooting under the alias @Londonlivingdoll, Dolly Brown hones in on form and line to show London’s public spaces from a new perspective.
‘I fall in love with nature over and over again but always feel excited about big buildings and city lights’, says travel photographer Nicolas König.
New Zealand-born photographer Mary Gaudin lives in France. Drawn to Modernist architecture she says: ‘My aim is to try and capture the feeling of being in these spaces.’
Photographer Vicente Muñoz draws out the graphic quality of architecture: ‘I do mostly portraiture and architecture, so I tend to borrow from one while shooting the other.’
