Beyond the Assignment: Defining Photographs of Architecture and Design examines the work of ten of today’s leading architectural photographers in the United States. By expertly documenting and artfully interpreting the built environment, these artists provide a critical contribution to the history of photography, mass media, and the architecture profession. Beyond the Assignment takes a long-overdue look at the way architectural photographers use visual storytelling, technical precision, and a unique visual sensibility to shape the way we see the built environment. In so doing, these photographers move “beyond the assignment” and help immortalize today’s architecture and design.
An accompanying panel discussion that will include photographers in the exhibition, architects, and members of the media will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 5 p.m. at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions).
