What has always impressed me about Margaret Bourke-White’s early architectural photography was its simplicity and off-kilter kitsch. I tried to emulate the feeling of the era she photographed in both of my photos. I wanted to create the Art Deco and odd angled photos of the buildings in New York. In photographing the buildings throughout downtown Calgary, I tried to recreate the same feelings by playing with light and angles that, while cliché now, weren’t for her.
