Project: Architektur Photographie Philip Heckhausen Website   Images Words Thumbnails Tags

Simon Malz

Philip Heckhausen (link) is a Zurich based architect and photographer. In addition to commissioned photoshoots, he enjoys having a dialog with the architecture through his camera, as well as capturing impressions during his travels. Working on his identity and website, I’ve learned a lot from the way he makes photographs.

The mobile-friendly website broaches the issue of architects creating a certain order to break free from it later. Thus, the overview is a uniform grid, referencing the medium format square ratio, while the project page allows for each image to be cropped individually, conveying what its subject demands. The following photograph peers from the right, seducing to look through the whole album. For an overview of all images within an album, there’s a ‘light table’ view, that also offers direct navigation to specific images.
