I spoke with Majed a few days ago and asked him a few questions concerning the modern architectural industry and how he’s been able to dominate it. Let’s hear what he had to say;
Do you have any special talents or ability that has enabled you to come this far in Architectural Photography?
I do not know exactly. It may be about myself, my ideas and my emotions in a given period, or it may be a way to draw my memories, to share my dreams and my desires, and to communicate my experience and observations.
My art is the expression of myself, my vision and point of view on things that matter to me and provoke my senses, by translating them in my own way.
What’s your take on Architecture and Photography?
Studying architecture opened my vision, I started to see the surroundings in a different way, you can basically say architecture gave me the black and white glasses and I started exploring the world with it, I love black and white because it makes everything more minimalistic, simple and easy to understand, each person has a different vision with colors but in black and white our vision unites.
How did you capture more than 10 cities all in black and white?
Every city has its own unique beauty, you just need to find it and express it in your own personal way, I always try to see, hear and listen to the other side of things and i am always amazed by that, I love playing with shapes and forms and try to make new stuff from old ones, and once you start you can’t stop, There is an indescribable magic in black and white that is impossible to explain.
What is your view on Architecture being referred to as art?
In light of this topic, there are a few points to note ;
Architecture is an art of form and it reflects who you are and what you feel and if architecture is not an art, what is “art”, anyway? I believe Architecture is functional art and has a responsibility to the public while art has no responsibility.
