SHOOTING SPACE. Architecture in Contemporary Photography



di Elias Redstones

  • A Collection of the best contemporary Photography of Architecture and the Built Environment

Photography has always played a vital role in how architecture is communicated. For most of us, it is how we experience the most exceptional, arresting, unreachable, beautiful or ephemeral works we cannot visit in person. With immediate distribution and consumption of imagery now so readily available, photography and architecture together are more important than ever before.

Single photographers are increasingly working closely and even exclusively with particular architects, allying their work with the design process itself. Some photographers are using new technologies to create visions of new architectures and imagined futures and others seek change through journalistic and social documentation.

Shooting Space: Architecture in Contemporary Photography covers a diverse range of subjects and themes across the built environment. Presenting the work of leading contemporary architects (from Koolhass to Hadid), intense urbanisation and evolving natural landscapes by international photographers as diverse as Helene Binet, Thomas Struth and Richard Wentworth.

Shooting Space not only provides a quick and engaging display of beautiful photography but more careful examination rewards you with a timely survey of our built environment.
