Photography and the law of architecture

Whittaker, E (2006) Photography and the law of architecture. In: Camera Constructs.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Dr Andrew Higgott, of the University of East London School of Architecture had organised a conference on architectural photography entitled 'Camera Constructs' and he invited me to present a paper and to take part in the exhibition that accompanied the conference. My paper was Photography and the Subject of Architecture and tried to relate Descartes and Kant's theories of subjectivity to Walter Benjamin's observations on the existence of spaces in the furtive urban topography. I showed a large architectural photo of a derelict stadium in Hirson, France, alongside work by 'professional' architectural photographers such as Heidi Specker, Peter Blundell-Jones and Rut Blees Luxembourg.
