Photographic Architecture in the Twentieth Century

The next chapters turn to the formats within which architectural photographs conveyed information to audiences. Chapter 4 concerns the publications of the Dessau Bauhaus (arch. Walter Gropius, 1925-26), delineating the relationship between the architect and the photographers who interpreted this influential building. The chapter shows how photography and publishing practice heightened the singularity and apparent authenticity of buildings. It also highlights alternative efforts to create a dialogue between the building and its photographs that was limited in scope, but rich in possibility.
