The rustic charm of one of Singapore’s Oldest Public housing with very simple geometric design of squares and circles somehow intrigued me. On my first visit during the day, I took a few shots but was not satisfied. I decided to check out what it would look like at dawn and discovered that the mixed warm and cold corridor lighting added more appeal to the image. My next thought was how to show that this scene was taken in Singapore. So on 14th August 2016, during Singapore’s 51st National Day celebration month, I proceeded to the location at dawn and saw Singapore flags proudly displayed by the residents in front of their apartment. This was the scene I had envisioned and happily clicked away.

The Sony World Photography Awards has announced the winners of the architectural category of their 2017 Open Category awards. The competition received more than 105,000 entries across ten categories ranging from wildlife to street photography. At Cambyte, we present the winner and explore other inspiring photographers (runner-ups) who in our opinion, ought to be followed. Tim Cornbill, the winner, received a Sony a7s ii with kit lens to inspire him to continue competing and winning.

Winning Work Tim Cornbill

“Oculus,” for his capture of a geometric concrete facade along the River Spree, Berlin.

Cornbill says “As an architect, I’m passionate about capturing buildings, and I’m always on the lookout for photogenic designs. I was really struck by the sheer scale of this façade and the visual impact of the circle, which I hope I’ve been able to convey in this everyday street scene, I am truly thrilled to have been recognized in the world’s largest photography competition and it will be amazing to see the photo exhibited in London.”
