If eyes are the window to a person’s soul then windows and doors are the, well the windows and doors to the soul of many buildings. As such they can be an interesting photographic subject. Architecturally the frames of a window or door create strong lines. In unusual building designs and partially ruined structures the windows and doors (or the gaps where they once were) create an easily identifiable and recognisable shape.
The window and doors can tell the story of the property. Their design may show the architectural norms of when it was built or the artistic whims of the designer. The materials used can give insight into the location and culture. Their state of repair might portray some of the buildings history.
