About Shooting Space: Architecture in Contemporary Photography

The connection between photography and architecture is stronger than ever. Photographers are increasingly working in collaboration with particular architects, which results in a fantastic symbiotic alliance where both mediums enhance each other. Photography helps to 'communicate' architecture, bringing unreachable and exceptional designs that we may not be able to visit, right to our hands.  Furthermore, some photographers use new technology to generate completely new visions and designs that are completely imagined but that heavily rely on architecture. Shooting Space: Architecture in Contemporary Photography covers a diverse range of subjects and themes across the environment and presents the work of leading contemporary architects.
