Windows and Doors of Europe project is an outcome of my love for architecture, photography and travel. I was backpacking in Central Europe where I used to walk around different towns every day for 4-5 hours alone with Nikon DSLR in my hand and a small backpack carrying my lens. Anywhere I stroll I would come across old beautiful buildings characterized by these elegant and charming windows and doors. These captivated my mind so much that I thought of capturing those impressions so that I can show it to the world the beauty that resides in these doors and windows. I believe that the perspective in which you view the world changes the meaning completely.
Just imagine a building without a door and a window. Ah! I can’t. A building architecture is incomplete without doors and windows. These add to the beauty of the architecture. Windows and doors seen along the narrow passages of European streets take on varying shades of brown, red, green and yellow, at their own whim and fancy. This art work captures shots of Stores of all kinds lining the narrow alleys across different towns, small cafes adorned with coffee bags and jars, convenience stores with rows of varied products showcasing their line, and stalls displaying their goodies in the open. This work captures the intricacies hidden behind these doors and windows and my fondness for arts and architecture. It reflects the surreal and the unknown beauty that transcends the narrow streets of Old towns in Europe.
This book showcases most amazing pictures of 162 Windows and Doors filtered among 2000+ photos clicked across different European cities/towns namely Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow, Zakopane, Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, Ljubljana, Auschwitz, Bled, Prague, Cesky Krumlov and Venice. These encompass several architectures namely Baroque, Gothic, Colonial and Victorian architecture. Each photograph presents its own essence in the most elegant perspective.
European architecture is one of the most eye catching and beautiful. Windows and doors magnify the glory of these beautiful structures. I hope next time you visit any of these cities you would stop by these doors and windows for few minutes, hold your breath and enjoy the timeless beauty these present to your eyes.
I wish to continue this project further covering western Europe and Scandinavian countries.
To keep this Project going I am raising funds by selling Canvas, Matt and Gloss prints of any of these pictures and several others. Any print you buy comes with a personalised Thank you note hand written by me. Rest of the photographs of this art work can be checked on my personal blog https://udsinghprojects.wordpress.com
