The Modern Movement in architecture was communicated by using photography, and its powerful effects can be seen to have formed the way it developed and was so widely adopted, as well as still shaping the way architecture is made today.

 

Architects such as Le Corbusier and Mendelsohn, as well as photographers including Moholy-Nagy and Werner Mantz, transformed it through the creation of often astonishing and powerful imagery. How this process functioned and how it developed are the subject of this talk:

 

Andrew Higgott has published extensively on the subject of architecture and photography, including the book 'Camera Constructs' (2012).
