Vancouver: Ema Peter

"I often call myself an architectural photojournalist.

My biggest influences were not architectural photographers. They were the photojournalists like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliot Erwitt. They tried to find the incredible "decisive moment" that makes you feel the scene exactly how they felt it. By looking at their images you experience a strong emotion and it stops you in your tracks.

Buildings change with the light and become humane when people walk in the frame. Sometimes they even become unrecognisable when reflecting the light. My biggest goal has been for people to look at architecture in a different way. For instance, if it's a building they pass everyday, I want them to look at the photograph and not even recognize it. In return, this makes them want go and experience it more for themselves."
