Space Framed: Photography, Architecture and the Social Landscape by Hugh Campbell
There is an overarching focus on constructed space-from cities and landscapes to the single anonymous-and the question of how it is inhabited. Thus, the photographs examined become vehicles for thinking about the co-existence between individuals, social groups, their surrounding spaces, and settings in the city and the landscape. By focusing on questions of technique and practice on the one hand, and on the formal and aesthetic qualities of photographs on the other, it opens up new ways of looking at and thinking about architecture, and how we relate to our cities and landscape.
Beautifully illustrated with photographs mostly, but not exclusively, from America, the book follows a chronological order, spanning from the early decades of the 20th century to the present.
