Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age

Todays lunch break was an inspirational one with a visit to “Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age” at the Barbican. The exhibition included a diverse range of subject matter from the banal vernacular of America’s Deep South to Lucien HervĂ©'s experiential images of the works of Le Corbusier. The exhibition starts with the birth of modernism in the 1930's but this is not the overriding idea of the work. The pervasive theme throughout the gallery is the exploration of buildings and structures of their time and unique observations through photography. I would highly recommend a visit if your in the Barbarian area.
