"Marina Mandarin"
Looking up in John Portman's amazing atrium at the Marina Mandarin in Singapore.

Biography: Architecture and photography share an important aspect in common: they are found at the intersection of art and science. Beautiful architectural design requires supreme creativity, but also requires a deep understanding of space, materials, and how they interact with each other. Beautiful photographic design requires artistic vision, but also requires a fundamental knowledge of the physics of light and how it is used to create a two-dimensional image with the appearance of depth. I believe that the intersection of art and science is where beautiful creation lives.
