Featuring 20 works by Sokari, this exhibition showcases architectural photography as an art form, and demonstrates photography’s ability to capture a view often missed. Sokari demonstrates that a single perspective can portray more than just a building. Each image reflects its context and the light, symmetry, and colour that conditions it’s every day. Showcasing different perspectives of architecture around the world, this exhibition highlights how certain structures come into their own when photographed from a ‘Point of View’.
