Manipulated Space

“Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed.” – Garry Winogrand.

The visually striking exhibition Image Building: How Photography Transforms Architecture travels to Frist Art Museum, Nashville, exploring the changing dialogues between viewer, photographer and architect.

The collection offers images from the 1930s onwards, demonstrating how lens-based media captures, enhances and reconfigures the built environment.

The show features work from Iwan Baan, Lewis Baltz, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Thomas Ruff, Stephen Shore, James Casebere and Hiroshi Sugimoto, alongside earlier modernist artists like Berenice Abbott, Samuel Gottscho, Julius Shulman and Ezra Stoller.

Until 28 October. Find out more here.
