John Lewis' goal in architectural photography is to produce images that are both technically outstanding and aesthetically powerful. He uses vintage and modern cameras as well as the latest technologies to extract the full range of artistic possibilities.


John believes architecture should also be artistically explored. His interest in architecture, both historic and modern, centers on their ties to the landscape and their relationship with a populace. For that reason John is partial to including people whenever reasonable to help translate the concept of experience and synergy.


Projects he has worked on include historic survey and documentation for redevelopment agencies, cities, and conservancies. Working with the Getty Conservation Institute and the City of Los Angeles, he produced many of the photographs included in their recent Historic Resources Survey as well as their Incentives Guidebook for the Preservation and Rehabilitation of Historic Homes. His personal interests include photographing historic buildings and churches in Mexico.


John Lewis believes black and white photography is often well suited to architecture in the way it emphasizes form and structure, the essential elements of architecture. His work has intrigued the likes of many, including Julius Shulman, who was particularly drawn to his panoramic images made with a vintage swing-lens camera. American Installation artist, Robert Irwin, was equally drawn to his work with a unique panoramic view of his installation (Irwin Gardens) at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, which has since become part of the Getty Museum's Permanent Collection in the Department of Photographs.
