Not Quite Light 2019 presents:
WHAT HAS BEEN THE EFFECT OF PHOTOGRAPHY ON ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN?
The use of photography in architecture has been fundamental in taking ideas and inspiration around the world. To explore this, the Modernist Society presents Frozen Music - a programme of film and discussion looking at Architectural Photography.
The event begins Eddy Rhead from the Manchester Modernist Society, who will present a short history of architectural photography and its role in the dissemination of Modernism.
This will be followed by a panel discussion looking at the techniques and disciplines of architectural photography and its role in the Instagram age.
FILM: VISUAL ACOUSTICS
Finally there will be a rare screening of the 2008 film Visual Acoustics : The Modernism of Julius Shulman - a beautiful, intimate documentary of the architectural photographer Julius Shulman who's photographs came to define how we understand mid-century American architecture.
On the panel will be:
DANIEL HOPKINSON - architectural photographer
JENNA JOHNSTON - Senior Heritage Consultant at Buttress Architects
DR RICHARD BROOK - Reader in Architecture at MSA and @mainstream_modern on Instagram
