these captivating night photos of the brazilian capital taken by photographer andrew prokos, are among this year’s winners at the international photography awards competition. the series is titled ‘niemeyer’s brasilia’ and the images portray the surreal architecture of oscar niemeyer who shaped the brazilian capital for over 50 years.

 

‘I became fascinated by oscar niemeyer’s buildings as works of art in themselves, and the fact that niemeyer had unprecedented influence over the architecture of the capital during his long lifetime,’ says photographer andrew prokos.
