A seductive interpretation of iconic architectural images by the Barbican Art Gallery.

An incredible exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery titled Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age (Closed 11th Jan 2015). A diverse range of 18 artists were represented including Walker Evans, Stephen Shore, Lucien Hervé and Nadav Kander. This provided the audience with a fascinating range of interpretations of the structural world around us. Hiroshi Sugimoto’s enormous out of focus abstractions pulled the viewer into a dream like state, wrapped in his inky black velvet prints, simply sublime. As if the exhibition was not stimulating enough I found these gems of postcards designed by Tom Pigeon for the show.
