Item description for Architecture in Photography by Dennis Sharp...

This book is like a journey through the modern architecture of the 20th century and, at the same time, an aesthetic and conceptual reflection on photographic vision. Paolo Rosselli, one of the leading exponents of landscape photography in Italy since the early 1980s, has assembled in this volume the traces of a multi-form, antagonistic, problematic itinerary through some of the icons of the Modern Movement and an overview of the more advanced international contemporary architecture. The works of Aldo Rossi, Luigi Moretti, Le Corbusier, Rafael Moneo, Frank O Gehry, Santiago Caltrava, Frank Lloyd Wright, Herzog & De Meuron, Rem Koolhaas and others become an opportunity to reflect through photography on Modern spatiality in relation to the city, its profile, and its interior landscape.

A difficult, often conflictual relationship exists between everyday life, the life of the man-on-the-street and Modern works. Problematically recounted through these images, this long visual reflection seeks to disrupt the fixed mind-set with which we have always looked at these 20th-century masterpieces.

The volume follows a dual track, represented by the written commentary of Dennis Sharp and of the author, which intersects with the dense sequence of images mounted in an arrangement that constantly moves on and around the theme of architecture lost in the architecture lost in the contemporary metropolis.

The photographs cover the time span of the past twenty years, from Paolo Rosselli's early Indian travels exploring Chandigarh up to his most recent architectural inquiries, revealing a gradual evolution in his photographic vision, and, more generally, the problematic course of contemporary photography.
