Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age

10 October 2014
Metro has recently produced black and white fibre prints for photographer Hélène Binet for the group exhibition ‘Constructing Worlds Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age’ now showing at Barbican Art Gallery, London.

The exhibition brings together over 250 works from eighteen exceptional photographers dating back to the 1930s to the present day, photographers who have changed the way architecture is viewed and the world around us perceived. Architecture has proved to be an enduring subject matter for photographers since the first images were shot  - Constructing Worlds looks beyond the medium’s ability to simply document the built world and explores the power of photography to reveal wider truths about society.

The exhibition takes the viewer on a global journey of 20th and 21st century architecture, revealing highlights including Berenice Abbott’s ground-breaking photographs charting the birth of the skyscraper in New York; the moving nature of Daniel Libeskind’s Jewish Museum as seen by London based photographer Hélène Binet; the recent dramatic growth of Chinese urbanisation recorded by Nadav Kander and the devastating effects of war in Afghanistan shown in the poignant images of Simon Norfolk.

Building on the legacy of the Barbican’s iconic architecture and pioneering approach to curating photography, the Constructing Worlds season presents a constellation of projects that celebrate the interplay of photography, architecture and life – as well as creating new portraits of the Barbican for our time.
