STAFF WRITER

Howdy! I'm Lexi, a photographer, graphic designer, and writer. After my husband and I restored our 1919 home in Baltimore, I developed a love of all things architectural.

As a huge nerd for post-processing and elaborate detail work, I've found great joy in the labors of love that photographing architecture demands. In my former travels around the globe as an ad agency photographer, I've fallen even further in love with the various structures and niches that AP has to offer!

Photographing Bespoke Cabinetry and Millwork With Tony Colangelo

Today we’re checking out an absolutely beautiful project by the wonderful photographer, Tony Colangelo!

Tony was hired by his long-time client South Shore Cabinetry (SSC) to photograph a stunning cabinetry/millwork installation in their recent project. Tony knew that the images will eventually be submitted to a regional building awards program on Vancouver Island, so his primary goal was to focus on displaying the kitchen.

Rex Zou and Aaron Shao Share a 5 Day Shoot at a Shopping Complex in Shanghai

This week’s featured project takes us all the way to Shanghai with architectural photographer Rex Zou. I’ve been following Rex’s work for a while now, and love both his clean style, and his penchant for documenting massive buildings in bustling cityscapes.

This particular project – the Shanghai Jiu Guang Centre by UNStudio and Nihon Sekkei – has been recorded by Rex and his partner Aaron Shao, under their studio Aaron&Rex Architectural Photography.

Take a Trip to the Louisville Waterfront Botanical Gardens With Architectural Photographer Justin Jordan

Meet my new friend, Louisville Kentucky based architectural photographer Justin L. Jordan! Justin’s lovely work sports a cleanness and crispness that I admire. While this project itself is different from the majority of his portfolio – which includes a healthy dosage of residential projects, interiors, and glossy renditions of corporate offices and buildings – Justin’s shoot for Louisville’s Waterfront Botanical Gardens fits perfectly in his body of work.

It’s Mezcal Time: Onnis Luque Shares His Experience Photographing a Palenque Mezcalero in Xaagá

Welcome to Casa Silencio, a boutique hotel and Palenque mezcalero for El Silencio mezcal in Xaagá Mexico. This retreat honors the ancient art and ceremonial process of making mezcal. It lies about 50 minutes outside of Oaxaca, inhabiting a former mezcal production facility that has since been overhauled by Mexico-based architect Alejandro D´Acosta.

Kevin Brost Photographs an Underground Speakeasy in Phoenix

For our final Project of the Week this year, we’re closing things out with a very cool set of images by Arizona-based architectural photographer Kevin Brost.

Today we’re looking at an underground cocktail bar in Phoenix called 36 Below by House of Form.

What I love about this series is how Kevin was able to make a beautiful, cohesive set of images with plenty of mood, all in an area void of natural light.
