Elias Redstone: Shooting Space
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 will cover a diverse range of subjects and themes across the built environment. Presenting the work of leading contemporary architects (from Koolhass to Zadid), intense urbanisation and evolving natural landscapes by international photographers as diverse as Helene Binet, Thomas Struth and Richard Wentworth.
