Mr Iñaki Hernández-Lasa
My name is Iñaki Hernández-Lasa and I'm a Spanish amateur photographer living in Ireland for the last 27 years. My passion for photography started at an early age when I used film cameras.
From a very early start I was always interested in architectural photography, and over many years I have been privileged to photograph many remarkable structures.
I tend to concentrate on their "genius loci", the very essence and nature of these buildings. I enjoy capturing their three-dimensional interplay, by providing a spatial reference and highlighting the breadth and scale of these extraordinary structures.
Buildings are best understood in their environment, by examining and engaging with their abstraction, their angles, their lines, their materials and their beautiful minimalism.
I have been fortunate to have photographed some of the most renowned buildings in the world such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A., Berlin's Reichstag, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago, La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias in Valencia, Dublin Airport's Terminal 2 or the Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin to name but a few.
