What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"It is an extraordinary assemblage — certainly too rich a collection to be thought of only as a survey of ways in which photographers have perceived architecture. It is that, of course, but it is also a document of architecture itself, a kind of history of human settlements and great cities, as well as buildings.... The images here are uniformly impressive—there is literally not a single photograph that is not of serious interest, and there are many that are classic." Paul Goldberger

"The book's 55-page catalogue raises Photography and Architecture far above the level of a coffee-table volume.... it is a scholarly achievement of the highest order." MartinFiller , Art in America
