• Photographed space and the (no)body

      Lovett, George; University of Bedfordshire (Technical University of Slovakia, Bratislava, 2013-09)
      Architecture journals present to us new buildings, pioneering ideas and triumphs of creative innovation… yet they are largely deserted. This paper argues against the negative impact of this on design culture and a resultant aspiration to design spaces that are not the territory of the body. A different approach is suggested in which the photographic communication of buildings might evolve to not only portray populated spaces but also to describe human experience – temporal, personal, expressive. The paper explores photographic theory, architectural representation and image psychology but is not limited to written discourse. Instead it reflects an ‘action-research’ series of alternative photographic experiments.
