Photography for Architecture by Paul Ott

By Paul Ott

Paul Ott zahlt zu den profiliertesten europaischen Architekturfotografen der Gegenwart. Seine Dokumentationen zeitgenossischer Architektur werden in zahlreichen internationalen Fachzeitschriften und Buchern veroffentlicht. Otts Fotos vermitteln jedoch stets mehr als die blo?e Physiognomie von Gebauden. In freien Fotoserien untersucht er Strukturen, die unsere Wahrnehmung der Umwelt mindestens so stark beeinflussen wie die Baukunst der Architekten: anonyme landwirtschaftliche Bauten, Hochhauser und ihr Schicksal sowie die dramatische Kulisse von Gro?stadten wie Sao Paolo. Das Buch bietet einen reprasentativen Querschnitt durch Paul Otts fotografisches Oeuvre und macht bewusst, dass Umweltgestaltung zu einem guten Teil auch auf „gelernten“ medialen Bildern uber und mit Architektur beruht. Vier Essays beleuchten das Werk aus den Perspektiven der Kunsttheorie und der Architektur.
