    Noel Baldewijns

The Bridges designed by Santiago Calatrava are always a big inspiration for me. The forms are almost organic or zoomorphic forms. The interpretation opportunities for photographers are countless. The designs are attractive for me as his bridges are music instruments for me, in this case heartstrings. To illustrate this I am focussing on the piylon and the cables.

Noel pursued a formal education at the academy of fine arts in Heusden Belgium, and individual master classes taught by different fine art photographers to further enhance his skills. Noel gets inspired by an ability to create an image of a building that creates a mystery and mood surrounding that building. He uses his imagination and state of mind that day to create the image, and enhance it. His favourite architects are Santiago Calatrava, Frank Gehry and Norman Foster and he travels all over Europe to be able to photograph their designs
