Meet the couple that travels around world creating stunning photos with architecture

If you needed another reason to stare at your phone longingly, then this duo’s whimsical photography project might just be it.

#Although flying in a hot air ballon is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have in your life, I must make a little complaint… It is pretty windy up there! You need to be really cautious not to drop any of your beloved items… Anna! Didn’t you hear what I just said? Hold on to your hats! Aunque volar en globo es una de las sensaciones más placenteras que uno puede experimentar en su vida, tengo una pequeña queja que hacer… ¡Y es que hace mucho viento ahí arriba! Tienes que tener mucho cuidado de que no se te caiga ninguna de tus pertenencias… ¡Anna! ¿Pero qué acabo de decir? ¡Agarra fuerte ese sombrero!

Based in Valencia, Spain, illustrator Anna Devis and architect (and storyteller, as he declares on his website) Daniel Rueda travel the world to find architecture that can be used as a prop in their quirky photographs.

What’s going on with the weather on Instagram these days you guys?! The other day we had black snowflakes, and today this red rain is falling so hard that some buildings are starting to change colour! If I were you I’d get out of there immediately, Anna… I don’t think carrying a matching umbrella will do you any good this time! ¡¿Se puede saber qué está pasando con el tiempo estos días en Instagram?! El otro día caían copos de color negro, ¡y hoy esta lluvia roja que está cayendo es tan intensa que algunos edificios están comenzando a cambiar de color! Si yo fuera tú me quitaba de ahí, Anna… ¡No creo que llevar un paraguas a juego te vaya a servir de nada esta vez!

“It is not enough to just have an image that looks beautiful,” Ruede told More with Less, “It has to tell something without the need of putting it into words.”


#Today, while @anniset and I were looking for the perfect spot to shoot a #WHPISeeFaces entry we discovered that @EsOlympus is giving away a trip to Barcelona in order to attend to the #PlaygroundOpening. You just need to play with perspective and tag them in your picture and you’ll be coming with us! If that doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will! – Hoy, mientras @anniset y yo andábamos en busca del sitio perfecto para participar en el #WHPISeeFaces nos hemos enterado de que #EsOlympus ha organizado un concurso para ir a la inauguración del #PerspectivePlayground! Tan sólo tienes que jugar con la perspectiva, mencionarles y etiquetar con #PlaygroundOpening tu foto para venirte con nosotros, así de fácil. ¡Se nos ha puesto una sonrisa de ventana a ventana!

The couple spins stories around the architecture they come across and feature themselves as characters in the tale.

#Architecture is a lot more than just buildings and houses, as explained by @shoair_m earlier this week… Lampposts are architecture too! But not only that; they can also be a very useful way to stay safe when things get crazy, specially while looking for the perfect submission for the #WHParchitecture challenge. Hang in there, past-me! La arquitectura es mucho más que edificios y casa bonitas, como ya explicó @shoair_m hace unos días… ¡Las farolas también son arquitectura! Pero no sólo eso; también son una excelente manera de permanecer a salvo cuando las cosas se ponen difíciles mientras buscas la foto perfecta para el reto semanal de @instagram. ¡No te sueltes, Daniel del pasado!

The result is a series of photographs that use perspective, colours and shadows and make it so hard to look away.
