#5 Architecture

Issue #5 of Photography+ explores the relationship between photography and architecture. From Mauro Restiffe’s images of the now iconic Brasília to John Divola’s exploration of post-war American domestic spaces, this issue investigates how artists depict society’s relationship with the built environment. Marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we reflect on how photographers documented the structure over its 28 year existence, highlighting a breadth of artists including Don McCulllin, Michael Schmidt, Shunk-Kender and Steffi Klenz. New work by Sybren Vanoverberghe, Richard Kolker and Andrea Gruetzner is featured, with projects ranging from the ruins of abandoned cities to abstract interiors captured in vivid colour. We also revisit British Litter Bins by Ian Leith, published in issue 15 of Photoworks Annual in 2010 and originally presented to coincide with Brighton Photo Biennial in the same year.
