One may think of it as a cinematic portfolio: the means by which one presents work to the world of one's profession when the work is in motion. It might seem redundant, then, for an architect to have one too.&nbsp;After all, buildings are, by and large, static objects&mdash;and drawings, plans, photos and renderings can tell a lot. But, for those architects that do attempt to encapsulate their portfolio with real, edited footage&mdash;usually in combination with either voice-over or text statements&mdash;the rewards can be great. Not only does it make their work very accessible, it's also a bit of a control freak&rsquo;s dream: the narrative of the practice is orchestrated, down to the millisecond.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150001930/in-focus-alex-upton In Focus: Alex Upton Ellen Hancock 2017-04-19T05:18:00-04:00 >2017-04-19T05:18:33-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ms/ms0ly83sqmvgh6r3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ms/ms0ly83sqmvgh6r3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ms/ms0ly83sqmvgh6r3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ms/ms0ly83sqmvgh6r3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p><a href="http://uk.archinect.com/features/tag/7347/in-focus?ukredirect" target="_blank"><strong>In Focus</strong></a>&nbsp;is Archinect's series of features dedicated to profiling the photographers who help make the work of architects look that much better.

On a clear day, you can see the White Cliffs of Dover, one of the most iconic of England&rsquo;s natural wonders, from its shores. Several centuries ago, Calais belonged to the English crown&mdash;its &ldquo;greatest jewel.&rdquo; More recently, the Germans seized it and then razed it. Calais is, in a way, the quintessential European border town.

So normal is the sight of&nbsp;<a rel="nofollow" href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/5497/homeless" target="_blank">homelessness</a>&nbsp;in the city that residents can easily become desensitized to it, making them less likely to question it, and at its worst, making the homeless population effectively invisible.
