Portuguese photographer André Vicente Goncalves photographs windows, and the result is stunning. The ongoing series, called Windows of the World, documents a variety of colorful exteriors, sills, shutters, and window shapes, grouping individual images into large grids according to their location. Who knew windows could have so much character and style?
“I always had a curiosity about windows,” Goncalves writes, “like the structure of houses, they change region to region.” The photographer later compiled the thousands of pictures he had taken and Windows of the World was born. “[It’s] a big evolution from the earliest windows that were only a hole in the wall.”
