Aesthetic & Artistic: 40 Stunning Man Made Structures


Some photographers have an exceptional talent to capture ordinary objects and turn them into masterful art. Paul (dex) is one such extraordinary photographer with an amazing gift to show us, through his images, the beauty that he sees all around him. His shots seem to magically transform urban scenes into breathtaking and dramatic work that wows the viewers. Sometimes we grow too used to seeing what is around us to really appreciate the beauty. These 40 aesthetically pleasing photos feature architecture, but you should really check out all of Paul’s awesome photography.

When asked what inspired him in this set of architectural photos that he calls Structures, he gave the credit back to the architects. Paul (dex) stated, “I’m just an amateur, but I’ve always been fascinated by architecture. When I got a digital camera and found Flickr, I was inspired by a lot of other talented photographers there to capture the amazing visions and creativity that surrounded me in the best possible light, but I consider the architects to be the true masters.”
