The black+white photographs throughout this website are by Alan Chimacoff — architect, architectural educator, photographer, cook, and friend.
An avid photographer since childhood, over the past 15 years — with the maturing of the digital age in photography — he has dedicated himself to the pursuit of “the perfect abstraction.” His subjects are the built world and ephemera, emphasizing cities, buildings, manufactured things and their details, fleeting moments of visual phenomena, and the light and the forces of nature on all.
His work is exhibited online at the Soho Photo Gallery in New York City, a member-artist run organization.
