Top 100 architectural photographers on Divisare's Atlas of Architecture
“The architectural photography scene has changed enormously over the last 10 years. Digital capture, treatment, transmission and sharing of images is now the norm. Architectural photographers in the digital age have increasingly become the authors of the visual narrative with which we perceive our constructed environment. Their vision is decisive, not only for the way we see architecture, but also for the way we understand it.” - Divisare
Divisare’s Atlas of Architecture has been online since 1998 and over the years it has become one of the largest archive database of international architecture. With its autonomous data structures, designers can open their own account and independently post their projects.
Divisare has always acknowledged the authorship role of architectural photographers, and for this reason they have a specific section for them on their site, which over the years has become the largest and most thoroughly documented existing resource on architectural photography.

With over 60 projects published on Divisare, Pygmalion Karatzas ranks among the top 100 architectural photographers worldwide from the 2333 registered. It is a great honor as photographers like Fernando Guerra, Tim Griffith, Roland Halbe, Iwan Baan, Hélène Binet, Åke E:son Lindman, Joao Morgado, Marcela Grassi, Hufton + Crow, Rasmus Hjortshøj, Yiorgis Yerolymbos, Shannon McGrath, Hedrich Blessing, Brad Feinknopf, Thomas Mayer, Richard Bryant - to name a few of the listed photographers - have all been a great inspiration and their dedication and excellence in the field continues to motivate me to strive for visual stories that best explore, portray and express the sincere efforts of thousands of people that are collectively represented by the finished works of architecture I am fortunate to experience through this iconographic medium.
When I started five years ago I couldn't image this new vocation would take me to the places I have been and give me such inner and outer fulfilment. I want to extend my warmest gratitude to all the people who supported me along the way. Lots of dedication, hard work and love has gone into the projects I proudly present in this website and I look forward producing much more.
