Nowadays we observe a number of cases that architecture functions as an image. Especially in modern photography, artworks with the theme of architecture draw public attention, which increases the proportion of architectural images in the photo. As such, a phenomenon that architectural images appear across the entire parts of the society is not a newly rising feature created by the development of media. It occurs because the process of before and after the architecture exists is discussed and shared through images that represent it. Architecture is a technology created because of the necessity of human beings, and has a close relationship with representation because the subject of forming its process is human beings. To design a building that does not yet exist, an architect represents a building that does not exist through drawings and models based on things he observed, personal experiences and social circumstances. In consequence, a building becomes in existence. The existing architecture has limits in time and space in order to be introduced to many people. Hence, the architecture is represented again by the media so that people can learn about it, and images are playing such role these days. Since the 19th century when photography was invented, photography was broadly used as a critical method to share architecture with a belief that it was an objective recording medium. It is because photography was highly evaluated as objective record excluding individuals' subjective opinions compared to other media such as paintings and prints. However, as the reputation of photography in the representation of architectural images was gradually expanded, photographers started reflecting their internal perceptions into architectural photos beyond copying architecture as it was. This article aims to represent buildings forming today's cityscape with a medium of photography as reflecting the researcher's internal perception. Recording architecture with photography is like recreating a three-dimensional space in two dimensions with the photographic perspective of a photographer. It implies that diverse expressions and interpretations are possible depended on how the photographer perceives and represents architecture. Buildings creating the modern cityscape perform functions of spatial and temporal enjoyment and aesthetic appreciation. The fact that architecture exists in diverse appearances in the same period of time means that a city is not an unchangeable space but a space formed by accumulated representation activities that reflect the times. In this perspective, I found beauty and future-oriented aspects from the architecture of modern cities that I observed in my daily life. To represent them in architectural photos, I examined expression methods such as TS lens, long-exposure and black and white photography, and attempted to represent a cityscape in surrealist style.
