impossible building

cover of: Filip Dujardin: Fictions

Architecture has figured large in recent photography – especially among those photographers who are interested in manipulation of images. Others employ straight photography to create equally surreal images of our uses for land. Examples of these recent, fictionalized photos of structures and landscapes are presented in a group of 19 books currently on display this semester in the Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library (in the Stuckeman Building.) The display is titled “Building with a Camera: Some Recent Photography”

The most recent of those books (Elias Redstone, Shooting Space: Architecture in Contemporary Photography, Phaidon Press: 2014.) provides an overview of this type of photography. The others on display are:
