Lightscape is a social enterprise providing creative services and products. It is the personal work of Roman Torres, a Philadelphia based designer currently photographing the theatrical, cinematic, and temporal nature of the environments around him.
In urban settings, his focus is on the fleeting interaction between the weight and texture of the built, the spectrum of ever moving light and the pedestrian actors that roam free... often unaware of the beauty they create together.
Off the grid, his explorations focus on finding opportunistic beauty in completely unpredictable scenarios. At the whim of weather, light and circumstance, his landscape and travel work is simply about capturing impermanence. Through tone and tenor, these images are less about the specific place and more about the colors, textures and patterns that connect us all, regardless of geography.
Bolstered by his formal training in architecture and his role as Founding Partner and Creative Director at Moto Designshop, an award winning design studio, the bulk of commissioned photography is focused on architectural, product and retail photography. Aided by 20 years of experience in design, clients from across the spectrum of built work have trusted him to capture the intricacies and nuance of their work.
In honor of that which connects us all, Lightscape is a social enterprise. 100% of our net profits (income minus expenses and cost of goods) is earmarked for a curated group of charitable organizations focused on social causes. This year, our focus is social justice and immigration. Capturing and leveraging beauty into support for social justice warriors and organization embodies the heart of the work Lightscape creates.
