The landmark architecture Amyn has photographed includes the James F Goldstein residence in Los Angeles, California, which is part of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art collection of historic properties, and the Frank Gehry-designed residential estate and beaches (worth $57.5 million), for an exclusive 90-page fashion and architecture production. The 11,413 square-foot house with Gehry's asymmetrical style is unique in mid-twentieth-century modern architecture.
Amyn photographed the famous landscape titled Morbras Meeting Point that exhibited at Sotheby's Chicago and auctioned at Sotheby's New York for the Philip Glass House Modern Views auction. This landscape, designed by world-famous landscape architect Kathryn Gustafson, is in Roissy-en-Brie, France.
In appreciation of Amyn's spontaneous aesthetic style, he has been a Guest Photographer on several occasions to the Aga Khan at the estate of The Aga Khan in Aiglemont, France. There, Amyn photographed the Aga Khan and several world leaders for the estate’s historical archives and documentation.
Amyn’s consistently exemplary work keeps him in company with the most influential photographers worldwide. His work is always ahead of its time, and he is a pioneer in the field of image coloration. It is reminiscent of early 1960s artwork and has made a comeback to the world of photography because of Amyn's secret formula in photo editing and photoshop utilizing a cinematic Technicolor metallic formula that no one else has.
