Architectural Photographs Emphasized By Strong Geometry

Dirk Bakker is an architectural photographer who focuses on the geometry of lines and curves on the architecture gems he sees in the cities he visits. The Amsterdam-based photographer, who works under the pseudonym Macenzo, has a history in graphic design which makes him see a strong connection between architecture and graphic design. In the photographs he shares on his Instagram profile, Bakker manages to blend these two worlds so his body of work is a powerful representation of shapes, lines, forms, and patterns.   

What accentuates his photographs is the way he portrays the structures he sees – Macenzo is also influenced by the minimalism, so he interprets the geometry of lines and shapes as a repetition in order to create an interesting and appealing rhythm to the architectural structures. He usually chooses white, but also bold-colored minimal architectural constructions and creates a repetition of facades that is simple, clear and precise, but at the same time has the power of a statement art piece.  

Bakker’s work has been published in numerous design and architecture magazines and websites, including Archilovers, Architectural Digest, Architizer, and ArchDaily.
