Katherine Lu


“Katherine Lu is an architectural photographer based in Sydney, having worked across residential and commercial architecture for the last ten years.

Her love for photography first came from the high school darkroom, after a supportive teacher gave her free reign, marvelling at how a simple developing process could change a piece of blank paper to a printed image. After studying both interior design and photography, Katherine spent her early career as a photographic assistant, mentored by various architectural photographers, before fully committing to her own work. 

Growing up in the inner city, the ever changing built environment has long been a part of Katherine's life. She’s keenly aware of the increasing density of the city and how for her generation, a three bedroom house with a backyard is increasingly a thing of the past. This is the basis for her interest in small, effective spaces and a desire to document and show the public that this way of living is a viable option. 

Katherine's work is regularly published in magazines, books, and online, but she still loves helping to bring lesser known but well designed projects to the fore, through photography.”
