Lightscape is a social enterprise providing creative services and products. It is the work of Roman Torres, a Philadelphia US based creative director and photographer currently exploring the theatrical and cinematic nature of the city and landscape around him.
In urban environments, 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... 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 the impermanence of it all. 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.
His personal work is heavily influenced by his background in design and in his day-to-day, is the creative director at Moto Designshop, an award winning architecture practice.
Bolstered by his formal training in architecture, the bulk of commissioned photography is focused on architectural, product and retail photography. Bringing with him his experience in design, clients from across the spectrum of built work have trusted him to capture the intricacies and nuance of their work.
By definition, our primary purpose is not that different from a traditional business. Our key difference is what we do with the profit we generate from print sales and services. 100% of our net profits (all income minus expenses and cost of goods) is set aside and distributed to charitable organizations focused. It is our way of doing a little bit of good in the best way we can.
