    MarkIs Yokohama - Commercial Style Architectural Photography

    If you have never been to the Minatomirai district in Yokohama Japan and you are a lover of architecture and design, I highly recommend taking the short trip from the city centre and have a walk around. It's there you'll find the new development and mall called the MarkIs. 

    The main entrance is flanked by two large volumes protruding horizontally from both sides, and is covered by a large steel canopy resembling the trees and landscaping in the front. Everywhere the linear rectangular design is both complemented and foiled by contrasting vertically oriented greenery, in my mind a very well done interpretation of the Japanese design aesthetic. 

    I was drawn to photograph this as a personal project and I present the image to you here of the main facade in a commercial advertising fashion. I chose the composition to accent the overhead structure, the trees and the scale of the building itself, and shooting at dusk always creates a beautiful mix of interior and ambient light to enhance the glass features of any structure. 

    Below is a short video of how I edited the photo and arrived at this final look.
