Guerra says of his work: ‘I believe an image like this, obtained by chance, and definitely not by major planning, give space meaning, creates rhythms that the architects had probably planned for. I was there to help tell the story.’ Here the skill and creativity of the photographer are examined, and the critical possibilities of photography explored.

‘Photographers are conveyors of the architectural experience and photography has the unique ability to explore and represent architectural space and form, and even to express fundamental architectural concepts,’ says curator Amy Croft. She hopes the exhibition will help ‘spark a wider debate on the use of imagery in the digital era as well as the importance of visual communication tools within the architecture and design industry’.
