Here/After: Structures in Time
"Paul Clemence’s photography and Robert Landon’s essays remind us
of the essential relationship between architecture, photography and time."
-- Terence Riley, architect and MoMA's former chief curator of architecture and design
Works by Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel and other modern and contemporary masters are the inspiration for Here/After: Structures in Time, a pioneering new book by award-winning photographer Paul Clemence and author Robert Landon. At once theoretical and poetic, Here/After combines strikingly original images and genre-bending essays to investigate architecture's invisible fourth dimension: Time.
The 38 black & white and color photographs in the book grow out of Clemence's restless search for new architectural encounters, which have taken him from Rio de Janeiro to New York, from Barcelona to Cologne. With his uncanny eye, Clemence doesn't just illustrate buildings but engenders the experience of moving through them—an encounter always deeply embedded in time.
Landon's lyrical essays mine similar territory, but instead of beautiful buildings, he explores time as the invisible force that shapes not just architecture but the very process of perception itself. His essay reveal the ways time is always lurking within the 'built environment' of the mind.
