Publisher's Description

With Houses Rooms Voices, Stefan Koppelkamm not only collects basic elements of urban space. The catalogue also uses them to stage a game with different times. It focuses on the Local Time project, which the photographer initiated in 1990. Shortly after the fall of the Berlin wall, he travels through eastern Germany and captures houses, streets, and squares in black-and-white photographs. Ten years later, he seeks out these places a second time and takes pictures of them from exactly the same position. The changes are remarkable: social and economical transformations permeate each of these images. Supplemented by contemporary urban impressions—enormous window façades and huge billboards—as well as urban sound collages, Koppelkamm creates a panorama that embraces not only space, but time as well.

Picture of Toshio Shibata | Laurent Ney

Publisher's Description

The book presents a collection of photographs by the Japanese artist Toshio Shibata of structures designed by the Belgian-Luxembourgish engineer Laurent Ney. Two artists, two media meeting one another. Both media deal with the same subject: the civil-engineering structure embedded in a natural setting. Both artists analyze topography, geology and landscape and detect essential forms that emphasize their artificial creations. Although temporality and locality are present in their work, there is also a kind of timelessness. Not only in the large scale; there are similar ingredients they work with. Also in the smallest detail of the individual object,texture and materiality play a predominant role.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

Victor, Colorado ­– the City of Mines – came into life in the early 1890s when a prospector who had been unsuccessfully searching for gold for nineteen years finally hit pay dirt. Victor, and the nearby Cripple Creek, became the two key towns in a strip of land just ten miles by six that offered up an extraordinary geological bonanza. People flocked into Victor in search of their fortunes and its population quickly rose to over 18,000. Flourishing businesses served the miners and the hundreds of surrounding mines, and an area which had once been isolated ranching country became totally transformed. The gold and the prospectors are now long gone, but Victor, with its current population of now only 450, still echoes this history in its streets and buildings.

Anderson & Low discovered it by chance fifteen years ago and were immediately mesmerized by the town’s individuality. With its sense of being a place outside of time – neither of the present nor of the past – it has drawn them back repeatedly.

In their images they weave back-and-forth from expansive landscapes, through to expressive architectural images and intimate interiors. Whilst their subjects are primarily architectural, the human imprint of these historic structures is evident and powerfully conveyed. The result is a disarmingly intimate and moving study of a small American town.

For over 25 years, Anderson & Low have collaborated in the creation of photographic and video art projects. Perhaps best known for their portraiture, they have also undertaken many critically acclaimed projects incorporating architecture and landscape. Their work is held in numerous public, museum and national collections worldwide including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, The National Portrait Galleries of both the UK and Australia, and has featured at the Venice Biennale. The City of Mines will be exhibited in Colorado Springs in autumn 2015.

Picture of Missing Buildings SIGNED

Publisher's Description

Missing Buildings seeks to answer war artist John Piper’s vision to preserve the ruins of the Second World War in London. This extensive body of work, made over the last five years, studies both the physical and the imaginative landscape of the London Blitz.

Over a million of London’s buildings were destroyed or damaged by bombing between 1940 and 1945. From the mysterious gap in a suburban terrace to the incongruous post-war inner city estate, London is a vast archaeological site, bearing the visible scars of its violent wartime past. 70 years after VE Day, Thom and Beth’s photographs search for evidence of the Blitz, both real and mythological, in order that we might memorialise what remains and contemplate its effects upon the British psyche.

Thom and Beth Atkinson are brother and sister.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a particularly heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at three times our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

With his Bay Bridge: The New East Span images, photographer Tom Paiva has richly documented the latest chapter in the history of spanning California’s East Bay. In the late 1920s, economic and social changes in the Bay Area, including the increasing popularity of automobiles, prompted the California legislature to establish the California Toll Bridge Authority and charged it with connecting San Francisco and Alameda County. The groundbreaking ceremony for the longest bridge in the world at that time took place on July 9, 1933, and presaged a nearly three-and-a-half-year project at a cost of $77 million. When it opened on November 12, 1936, the Bay Bridge caused “the greatest traffic jam in the history of San Francisco.” During its first year of operation, the Bay Bridge was crossed by nine million vehicles.
The 50th anniversary of the completion of the Bay Bridge, which actually includes both a suspension bridge and a truss bridge, took place in 1986. Three years later, the Loma Prieta earthquake damaged the East Span, even though the epicenter of the 7.1 earthquake lay nearly 90 miles south. After 53 years and many millions of vehicles safely transported, the bridge was showing its age, prompting plans to create a more enduring structure.

In 2002, the 11-year construction project on the new Bay Bridge began, involving a complete retrofit of the suspension bridge and the replacement of the truss bridge with the world’s longest self-anchored suspension span. Photographer Tom Paiva, on an aerial assignment in the Bay Area, happened upon the initial phase of the project and knew that he had to become part of it Assigning himself the task of recording the creation and the construction of this monumental structure from his vantage point, Paiva believed that his unique vision would offer a valuable, yet complementary, view of the $6 billion enterprise. His quest was to contribute a lasting document that would honor the visionaries—past and present—who could imagine and create these imposing, yet beautiful, man-made spans.

With “Bay Bridge: The New East Span”, Tom Paiva has produced a masterful body of work, documenting one of the most daunting, and finally triumphant, engineering feats of our generation. This beautifully produced, oversized monograph pays fitting homage to its subject, and all of those who were involved in its creation.

Picture of Angola Cinemas

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

Angola Cinemas honors the fantastic, unique and little-known architecture of movie theaters in Angola, built in the decades before the end of Portuguese colonial rule in 1975. “Initially designed as traditional closed spaces, later in the 1960s open air cinemas with terrace bars became the order of the day, so much better adapted to the tropical climate. The arrival of these cinemas brought elegance to the business of going to the movies.” (Miguel Gomes, “Cinema from way back when...”)

Yet it is not only this exceptional architecture which impresses us and mirrors the experimental spirit of its ambitious and visionary builders. Visiting the cinema was a communal act—it was a crucible where young met old, where people fell in love and where liberation from colonialism was a feasible option. Examining the architectural history of these buildings, Walter Fernandes’s photographs are documents of urban organization in the twentieth century, and of the changing mentalities of a society living within the possibility of its foreseen independence. What has changed since then, and what is the future of these urban cathedrals? Angola Cinemas poses such questions, both preserving these architectonic treasures and reflecting on their cultural, social and affective heritage.

Picture of Buildings in Colorado 1964-1980

Publisher's Description

This two-volume publication examines the early work of photographer Robert Adams (born 1937) in relation to the German architect Rudolf Schwarz (1897–1961). In a previously unpublished text, Adams reveals a close connection between his photography and the European architect. In the 1960s, on his only European tour, Adams focused specifically on Rudolf Schwarz's churches in Aachen and Cologne, which left a lasting mark on Adams and inspired his decision to become a photographer and his early choice of subject, the Denver suburbs. As Adams wrote, Schwarz's buildings "helped suggest to me, when I returned to America, that not just churches, but whole urban and suburban landscapes might be revealed as sacred if we brought to them a measure of the same passionate regard that Schwarz had brought to his specifically religious commissions."

Picture of Shooting Space: Architecture in Contemporary Photography

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

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: Architecture in Contemporary Photography 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. 

Presenting the most extraordinary work of contemporary architectural photography,Shooting Space will not only provide a quick and engaging display of beautiful photography but more careful examination will reward the reader with a timely survey of our built environment.

Picture of Evocations of Place: The Photography of Edwin Smith

Publisher's Description

Hailed by the poet and architectural historian Sir John Betjeman as “a genius at photography”, Edwin Smith (1912–1971) was one of Britain’s foremost photographers. At the time of his death he was widely regarded as without peer in his sensitive renditions of historic architecture and his empathetic evocations of place. The recurrent themes of Smith’s work – a concern for the fragility of the environment; an acute appreciation of the need to combat cultural homogenization by safeguarding regional diversity; and a conviction that architecture should be rooted in time and place – are as pressing today as when Smith first framed them in his elegant compositions. By providing the first in-depth survey of his work, this book introduces Smith’s poignant imagery to a new generation.

Publisher's Description

Over the last few years, the Architecture Photographer Giovanni Presutti has photographed many of the most important buildings in major European cities, placing a special focus on constructions built in the last decade. The methodical research and surveys which he carries out before each trip have led him to the conclusion that the majority of these buildings have two key aspects in common. The first is their very prominence; their devotion to aesthetics. It is clear that the works are produced by contemporary society, with even those featuring complicated internal structures increasingly characterized by attention to exteriority. It is important to note, however, that these buildings do not lack functionality. The second is the uniformity of style and planning. Presutti encountered similar ideas and materials in every country he visited which were often completely unconnected to local traditions. This frequently made it difficult to place a certain building in a given country. It is as though the European Union, having not yet achieved political or social unity, has somehow succeeded at an architectural level. Giovanni Presutti explores these issues in Contemporanea, emphasizing the aesthetic qualities his subjects have in common; the lines, materials and reflections, as seen from different perspectives. In the process, he has sought out pureness of form, and created a unique context; one that is representative of our time . A foreword by Antonio Belvedere, and an introduction by the Parisian-born curator, critic and photography historian Gabriel Bauret, provide a critical perspective on this collection of images.

Picture of Architecture in Photographs

Publisher's Description

From the invention of photography in 1839, architecture was second only to portraiture as the most favored subject for the camera. The fact that buildings were immobile was advantageous for the long exposures needed in the early days, but architectural images were popular for other reasons: they documented dynastic, civic, and religious achievements; educated architects about construction and decorative details; and whetted curiosity about distant lands. Later photographers found innovative ways to depict structures of every era and type.

Arranged chronologically, Architecture in Photographs spans the history of the medium and includes works in a variety of photographic processes by such distinguished nineteenth-century practitioners as Henri le Secq, Gustave Le Gray, and Roger Fenton; twentieth-century photographers Eugène Atget, Alfred Stieglitz, and Walker Evans; contemporary artists Ed Ruscha, Lewis Baltz, and Steven Shore; and younger image makers Catherine Opie and Michael Wesely.

The seventy-five images presented here, all from the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, form a panoply of architectural structures and styles, from Egyptian ruins to Greek temples and Gothic cathedrals, and from skyscrapers and Modernist schools to mundane vernacular dwellings.

The book is published to coincide with the exhibitionIn Focus: Architecture, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from October 15, 2013, to March 2, 2014.

Bernd & Hilda Becher are among the most influential artists of our time. The Bechers initiated their work on industrial heritage threatened with destruction at the end of the 50s. They set up what was to become one of the largest industrial archival funds of our time. For the first time, the work of the two German photographers is resented from a historical perspective through the printed matter; thus allowing for a comprehension of the different stages in their practice, notably the shift from a conception of the work identified by a unique photograph to a representation of the work as a series of images, or typology.

Picture of Invisible City

Publisher's Description

There are the cities that we visit and then there are the ones that we think we have visited, that we feel as though we have always known. Irene Kung accompanies us in these meanderings of the mind, amid monuments that seem to rise up out of nowhere, dazzling us with their own lights, stylised with pure lines worthy of our imagination. These highly refined images by Irene Kung are the result of a long period of research and have earned her international acclaim. It is not a question of reproducing reality: the monuments that she chooses to photograph come from various cities and eras, we know them all, yet all of them also seem to belong to a dream world.

In this book, the Flatiron in New York, the Millennium Bridge in London, the Duomo in Milan or the Colosseum become apparitions from a world of fables. Together, they trace the outlines of an ideal city – one of dreams as opposed to experience – that we traverse, guided by Irene Kung, within a suspended world.

Publisher's Description

This volume is an essential addition to the Bechers’ body of work, devoted to their images of rock-processing plants and lime kilns taken in Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, and Great Britain throughout the 1980s and ’90s. Each structure is unique, its details dependent upon the region and the date of its construction, and the book features buildings whose essential function is ancient but remain important today. Although a small number of these images have been included in previous monographs, this is the first publication to showcase a comprehensive collection of the Bechers’ study of stonework and lime kilns. Whether presenting single shots or their signature typological grids, the Bechers created a photographic testament to the industrial revolution that so emphatically shaped the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. At the same time, however, they also captured a much-older manufacturing tradition: the quarrying and processing of stones.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

In Le Corbusier: Secret Photographer Tim Benton reflects on the famous architect’s use of photography, starting with the young Charles-Edouard Jeanneret’s attempts to take professional photographs during his travels in central Europe, the Balkans, Turkey, Greece, and Italy. While Le Corbusier always claimed that he saw no virtue in taking photographs, he actually bought three cameras and took several hundred photographs between 1907 and 1917, many of them of publishable quality. In 1936 he acquired a 16mm movie camera and took 120 sequences of film and nearly 6,000 photographs with it.

This previously unpublished material is the basis for the publication. It reveals Le Corbusier to be a sensitive and brilliant manipulator of a wide range of photographic styles. Le Corbusier: Secret Photographer provides dramatically new insights into Le Corbusier’s visual imagination, his changing attitudes towards nature and materials in the 1930s, and his distrust of progress.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

More than 300 of the world's most important architectural photographs in a magnificent book.

Architecture has always been a magnificent and much debated platform to express the spirit of the times, worldviews, everyday life, and aesthetics. It is a daring materialization of private and public visions, of applied art and the avant-garde alike. Concrete – Photography and Architecture presents images of iconic urban architectures and townscapes that refelct the close and complex union between photography and architecture, between architect and photographer. Starting from the 19th century, when photography was invented, the book picks up positions, juxtapositions, and thematic fields that bring together the concrete, fundamental, and the historic. Besides of everyday architecture and glamorous buildings, it looks also at structural horizontal and vertical axes; houses and homes; utopias, plans and reality; the captivating transience of architecture against the test of time; and destruction both natural and intentional.

Essays by Jochen Becker, Johannes Binotto, Verena Huber Nievergelt, Michael Jakob, Nicoletta Leonardi, Lorenzo Rocha, Caspar Schärer, Aveek Sen, Urs Stahel, and a discussion with Annette Gigon and Armin Linke.

Acclaimed Japanese photographer Yoshihiko Ueda embarks upon an introspective pilgrimage to discover the architecture of Mies van der Rohe in this elegant photo book. His passion for the famed Modernist’s work is palpable, as he approaches each subject with loving, almost ritualistic care. Ueda’s camera often focuses on the details: textures and grains, doorknobs and furniture, the natural surroundings, the way the light falls, or overlooked corners and unexpected views. He guides us with a sense of physically moving through the place, glancing around, taking it all in with the repetition and progression of viewpoints. In short, a masterful presentation.
