A visual survey of contemporary artists' photography of architecture, featuring the work of Andreas Gursky, Iwan Baan, Wolfgang Tillmans, Catherine Opie, Thomas Ruff, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and more.

Since the invention of photography, architecture has proved a worthy subject for photographers.Shooting Space: Architecture in Contemporary Photographyshowcases the relationship between the two practices. The book presents a broad spectrum of work from a diverse roster of renowned and emerging artists: Annie Leibovitz captures the construction of Renzo Piano'sNew York Timesbuilding; James Welling revisits Philip Johnson's iconic Glass House; Walter Niedermayr shifts perspectives on SANAA's sculptural designs.

The book is divided into five chapters, covering collaborations between photographer and architect, global urbanization, alterations to the natural landscape, reappraised Modernist icons, and imagined environments. Presenting a fresh study of outstanding work in contemporary architectural photography,Shooting Spacenot only provides an engaging display of beautiful photography, but will reward the reader with a considered survey of our built environment.

Editorial Reviews

"Artists who elevate the image itself, as compositional work, beyond photography as a means of conveying architectural reality." —Details (Germany)"The pictures reveal the inherent tensions between the natural world and constructed spaces and serve as a provocative look at modern life." —Elle Decor"The 200 stunning images range from the work of star architecture photographers like Iwan Baan to artists like Annie Leibovitz. It?s a look at not just the clean lines and perfectly captured light that are so familiar to the practice of photographing, but also the more complex photographic art interrogating the built environment." —Co.Design"You?ll never look at architecture the same way again." —The Guardian"A beautiful window on growing urbanization, man-made alterations to the natural landscape, rediscovered modernist icons and imagined worlds." —Christie?s magazine
