Alan Karchmer is a photographer of architecture, interior design and the built environment. His life in photography began while he was studying for his master's degree in architecture. This foundation in critical analysis informs his artistic vision, with particular emphasis on context, materiality, quality of light and human interaction. In a career spanning 40 years, he has received commissions from the foremost architects of our time, who rely on his insightful images to define their work. His photographs have been published in the architectural press and exhibited in museums and private collections worldwide. He often collaborates with his wife, the photo stylist Sandra Benedum, whose keen perceptions bring greater depth to the visual narratives they create. The Karchmer Photographic Archive is a Promised Gift to the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.
