Follow Friday: City & Architecture Photographers

Published by Diana Tula · February 1st 2013

Hi everyone! Inspired by the Follow Friday hashtag movement on twitter we are starting a new weekly feature on our blog. With Follow Friday posts you can discover new, popular and up-and-coming photographers from 500px to follow and add to friends.


Take a stroll down the streets of Europe with photos by EGRA. EGRA is a photo duet of two St.Petersburg photographers, who bonded over their love for photography. Their photos often shot with a wide angle lens beautifully capture the essence of cities, highlighting architectural elements with moody dusk to dawn skies and empty streets. When looking at their photos you really wish you were there.

Ralf Wendrich

If there’s one friend Walter Gropius and the rest of Modernist architects were missing in the 1920’s that would be Ralph Wendrich. Ralph Wendrich’s photography embodies the Modernist movement with his simple and clean photography. His photography is so effortless and precise that at times you wonder if it really is a photograph you’re looking at and not a 3D digital rendering. Take a look at his work for yourself and be wowed!

Ludovic Waugrand

Do you love graphic design? Then you’ll love photos by Ludovic Waugrand. Attracted to the power of graphic arts French photographer Ludovic Waugrand channels his love for graphics into photography, creating strong and bold photographs. Carefully composing and cropping each shot Ludovic presents us with a unique architectural view.

Aaron Yeoman

Commuting to work on day-to-day basis many of us ignore the architecture and engineering around us. Aaron Yeoman erases the ordinary of London Underground with cool and haunting photography. Visit Aaron’s profile for striking Underground series and more architecture photography.

Phillip Gotze

Are you tired of seeing those same spiral photos everywhere? Well, these spirals just might change your mind. Phillip goes around photographing staircase spirals of the most unique shape and colour (be it teal, white, maroon or neon green), transforming photo cliche into excitement.

Alisdair Miller

The future is here! Alisdair Miller photographs Dubai from all angles, showing to us that the future is here, right here in Dubai. Visit his page for new world photos with foggy views, unusual angles and lots of architecture.

Matthias Heiderich

For those who enjoy the colour palette and feel of the 1970’s you are in luck. Matthias Heiderich’s photos have just that and a bit more. Matthias manages to photograph the world around him by singling out architectural elements that create new constructs and new architecture on their own. Want to know more about Matthias? Read an interview with him on our blog.

Jean-Baptiste Poulain

Jean-Baptiste takes a different approach to architecture photography with photos of the industrial sector. Reinforcing his subject matter such as factories, train stations, harbours and mines with b&w and desaturated colours he elevates industrialized architecture to an art form.

WK Cheoh

Enjoy refreshing urban landscapes of Singapore and an occasional cat photo snuck into the portfolio of WK Cheoh. For WK photography is a hobby that he takes seriously, a half decade of photo practice and perseverance shows through in his beautiful city photographs.

Nick Frank

Still craving for modern architecture? Indulge in simple, modern and clean forms of Nick Frank’s photography. Focusing on geometric elements and patterns Frank takes us on a tour to most interesting places.

We hope you enjoyed our roundup! This is the first Follow Friday post featuring City & Architecture photographers and there are many more photographers in this field whom we can’t wait to recommend to you. Come back next Friday for more incredible photographers to follow and get inspired by. Thanks for reading :)
