Introducing the absolutely fantastic work of abstract architectural photographer, Pete Sieger.
Pete Sieger studied architecture in the late 1960’s, and received his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Minnesota in 1973. He has worked as a practicing architect for over thirty years. And Pete Sieger’s interest in architectural photography dates to 1972 when he acquired his first large format camera, a 4”x5” Kodak Masterview with a 90mm Schneider Angulon lens. As an in-house photographer, Pete documented over fifty completed projects for Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. (MS&R). He is now providing architectural photography services for a growing list of clients in Minnesota and beyond.
“Pete Sieger is an architect with a photographer’s eye and a photographer with an architect’s eye. I’m instantly jealous. He has a perception of architectural form which goes beyond the norm. His images are both informative and pictorial. They exude quality”, says of Pete Sieger fellow Architectural Photographer, Andy Marshall.
His work has indeed been published in a variety of books and architectural magazines and has also been included in exhibits sponsored by the University of Minnesota, College of Design. He works utilizing both the 4”x5” format (film) and direct digital capture with perspective correction lenses.
And do note this: back in 2010 Pete Sieger co-founded IDE[A] – Imaging the Designed Environment [Architecture] – a Minneapolis based architectural photography collaborative consisting of seven Minneapolis photographers and film-makers.
