Capturing the work of mid-century architect Iwan Iwanoff has been a creative project close to the heart of architectural photographer Jack Lovel. Iwanoff’s work is renowned for its brutalist aesthetic, honed over years within the context of Perth’s saturated, sunny climate.
As a creative outlet to Lovel’s commercial photography practice, the project also hits close to home given that he lived in the Jordanoff House, an experience that has left an indelible mark on him. Motivated on a deeply personal level, Lovel has been documenting the extraordinary work of an architect whose architectural legacy deserves to sit in the cannon of Australian greats.
