The Open Road / David Campany, 2014
And sticking with the theme of photography (what my blog mostly seems to focus on these days…), here is a lovely new book from Aperture, examining the American Road Trip as a theme of 20th century photography. Super nice.
Constructing Worlds at the Barbican — until 11 January 2015
(above) Yangtze / Nadav Kander, 2007
I went to see Constructing Worlds a few weeks ago and didn’t get round to writing my review of it until now. Well, what an incredible show, truly awesome. It’s a collection of 18 massively influential photographers, examining their relationship with architecture and the built environment. Basically, it felt like somebody had made my dream exhibition. Shore, Gursky, Ruscha, Sugimoto, Kander, Evans, the Bechers, Norfolk…. the list of featured artists is truly amazing. There were 1 or 2 in there who I hadn’t seen before, and their was a delight to discover alongside all the big hitters who I’ve been obsessed with for years. Such a great selection of work, highly recommended. Also the exhibition design (by Stefi Orazi) was really nice, as well as the accompanying book.
I’m going again for sure.
