Brian Parillo uses wide-angle lenses to create interesting and unusual images of architecture.
Brian Parillo likes to compare his architectural photography to design. “Moving things around compositionally is like arranging rooms, to a sense,” the 41-year-old Los Angeles-based artist explains. “You have to use restraint and remove visual clutter to keep attention on the building itself.” He went pro in 2003, when he realized his work directing and filming actors for commercial auditions had given him an eye for still-image composition. But Parillo only began shooting architecture two years ago, when he developed an interest in abstract imagery as a personal project.
