John Pawson & His Visual Diary

One of my favorite architects, John Pawson is also a great photographer!
[ refer to my previous post ]

~isn't it so inspiring?
In a life spent almost constantly on the move, John Pawson is always looking for 
patterns, details, textures, spatial arrangements and coincidental moments 
that can inform his work as an architect and designer. 
Since acquiring a digital camera, he has amassed over 200,000 snapshots. 
The anthology of nearly 300 images in his latest book has been carefully culled from 
this massive visual diary. His book, 'Visual Inventory' will be available in March 2012.

Interesting little interview LNM - thanks for posting.
Although I did get distracted trying to figure out which compact camera he's using.(I think it's a Canon)
He's not a camera snob anyway.

What a great idea - I'm curious to know if he's got prints of all those photographs... I suppose he can always build himself a big space to keep/show them all in? Curiously cool airport in your previous post (essential in such a hot climate!) xox
