Share Building with Light - An International Symposium on Architectural Photography

Event Details

The two-day symposium aims to reflect on the role and relevance of architectural

photography as a form of expression, as historical record and as spatial narrative.

Additionally, the symposium will examine the impact of collecting architectural photographs

as well as their preservation and dissemination by means of digitisation, exhibitions and

publications. The presentations and discussions will pay tribute to the late Robert Elwall,

founder of the RIBA Photographs Collection and a distinguished curator and author whose

influential international history of architectural photography Building with Light has given the

symposium its title.

 

Keynote speakers will include architectural photographers and academics such as Canadian

photographer Geoffrey James whose panoramic images of the built landscape explore the

relationship between society and its surroundings; Hélène Binet, a Swiss-French architectural

photographer based in London and the author of Composing Space: The Photographs of

Hélène Binet; Peter Hales, an American photographer, historian and Professor Emeritus,

University of Illinois at Chicago; and Iñaki Bergera, a Spanish architect, photographer and

theorist.

 

The symposium’s topics will cover broad research areas such as the historical and

contemporary evocation of architectural interiors, buildings, place and landscape; forms of

photographic response to genius loci and national identity; the reciprocal influence on and

with publishing; and curatorial issues and approaches to architectural photography over time.
