Product Description

Review

The interrelationship between photographic practices, architecture and the design process is of long standing, and the literature in this area continues to bring new and exciting modes of interpretation. Camera Constructs is a cleverly conceived volume which makes an alert contribution through a carefully articulated and keenly focused study which opens up further debates in this fertile terrain. Expertly edited by Higgott and Wray, Camera Constructs brings together the salient themes associated with visualizing the city through the means of photography and the lens of Modernism. This study will be of real value both as an undergraduate text and to scholars working in this fascinating interdisciplinary crossroads.'Alan Marcus, University of Aberdeen, UK'An astonishing collection that puts new life into the whole question of architecture's relation to photography. Encyclopaedic in range and approach, these inspiring essays, many by young and emerging scholars, set off all sorts of thoughts about the multiple representations of space and time in these two media.'Adrian Forty, The Bartlett School of Architecture, UK'Camera Constructs is a brim-full compendium packed with a rich variety of relational investigations into photography, architecture, and urban space.'CAA Reviews'This volume offers an expansive range of conceptions of architectural practice - from the imagined spaces of the unconscious, to the pristine spaces of modern architecture, to the virtual fields of Google maps. The range testifies to the commanding influence that photography has had on architecture. Much more than a tool of reproduction, photography has allowed the field of architecture to redefine itself in compelling ways.'History of Photography

Discussions are at their best why and how the architectural photographs have changed the perception of constructed spaces and their landscapes as well as human relationship through photography.
