.First monograph of Bryant's work, which spans 30 years and contains photographs of buildings by every major contemporary architect.Images are selected as pairs or 'contrasts', to tell a series of visual storiesRichard Bryant is one of the world's leading architectural photographers, upholding a tradition that can be traced back to the work of twentieth-century masters such as Lucien Hervé and Julius Schulman. Bryant has photographed seminal projects for architects as varied as James Stirling, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, and David Chipperfield. His passion for combining the essence of architecture, light, space, form and detail is the bedrock of his work. But it is not only contemporary architecture that Bryant admires. He has a strong leaning towards history. As a student of architecture, he chose to make his final year thesis a mainly photographic essay on the buildings of the Veneto, with specific emphasis on Palladio. More recently, he has made detailed studies of Carlo Scarpa's Castel Vecchio, in Verona, and the Soane Museum in London. This book selects images from across this wide-ranging spectrum, arranged in groups or contrasting pairs so that the viewer is presented with a series of compelling visual stories.
Deyan Sudjic is director of the Design Museum in London. As founding editor of Blueprint Magazine in the 1980s, he frequently commissioned Richard Bryant to photograph newly completed projects. His books include The Edifice Complex: How the Rich and Powerful Shape the World (2006).
