Laurian Ghinițoiu uses photography as an instrument to document the built environment. He graduated as an architect from Iași, Romania in 2010 and in 2014 he obtained a master’s degree at DIA, Dessau International Architecture. What began for Laurian as a curiosity, photography, became a lifestyle and an ongoing journey around the world through hard work and passion. This point of view helped him to understand the complexity of architecture at a global scale. The spontaneous encounters mark the start of a new series of photography projects which later will be materialized into publications and exhibitions. He obtained good results in international photography competitions in the last years. Recently, he won the Architectural Photography Award 2019. His photographies are published by the main magazines in the field, Phaidon, Domus, Taschen, El croquis, Wallpaper, Zeppelin and have been selected as covers for influential magazines such as Architectural Record, A+U. Amongst his collaborations, we can acknowledge David Chipperfield, OMA, BIG, Heatherwick Studio, SO_IL and also emerging studios such as Karamukkuo, SUO, Miolk.

I graduated as an architect from BME, Budapest in 2015. During my studies, I finished Camera Anima Open Academy’s photographic course, as I was getting more interested in architectural photography. Since then, besides my architectural projects, I work as an architectural photographer. I won a few awards, including the Hungarian Press Photo Competition’s 3rd prize in portrait stories category. My work has been published in numerous sites and magazines. I also teach photography from time to time.
