About half of the architectural photography that I do is for corporate clients, usually as progress photos of new builds and developments. These projects entail monthly site visits to document how much work has taken place between each shoot. Although the photographs are expected to be a straight-forward record, while I am there I can’t help but look for beautiful light and surprising colours as well.
On one such visit I was intrigued by these markings on a partition wall. Of course they are not an industrial art installation, as I wanted to imagine. Each colour represents a specific completed task, making it easy to know at a glance whether the job has been done, while adding a pleasing pattern of reds, greens, blues and yellows in the process.
