Azar Architectural Photography was founded in 2012 to establish Farshid Nasrabadi’s already existing practice of architectural photography. Farshid’s architecture studies add a distinguished aspect to his photography. His deep understanding of the built environment and the urban setting, which are acquired through both academia and job experience, are why his photos capture the object and the sense of space and the spirit of the architecture and city. Azar Architectural Photography portrays the works of leading practices and their architectural designs and urban solutions. This includes photographing the final buildings, the construction process, aerial images, and even their design models. Architectural photography not only serves architects, architecture and design magazines, and real estate firms, it also benefits researchers in a broad range, from architectural history to modern critical studies and arts. Azar Architectural photography has always been involved in these activities, whether documenting cultural heritage for governmental bodies or independent researchers, printed books and magazines or online world famous ones, exhibitions on the local scale, or international events such as the Venice biennale. Azar Architectural Photography is currently located in Stockholm, Sweden, and accepts projects in all of Sweden and Europe. (F-tax Approved)
