Light & Mass


Light & Mass explores the interplay of dense form and hard light within the modernist architecture of America’s East Coast.


Inspired by the distinct quality of light not found in his home country, Owen creates sun-drenched urban landscapes of structures often ignored in the busy cities of the Eastern seaboard. Heavy concrete textures are brought to life in the crisp light, amplifying texture and density to reveal unseen geometry in the built environment.


Through an ongoing series of images, Light & Mass challenges the typical standards of architectural beauty, celebrating the unnoticed and underappreciated buildings around us.
