Five Hundred Buildings of London
This is another chunky compact book. My favorite book size in the world is a compact chunky. The interior design is okay. It’s simple, but could be a lot simpler and further succeeded in what the book’s designer intended. I was very impressed by the quality of the photos. The photographer used a perspective control lens which means the lines run parallel to one another and to the edge of the photo. Go outside and photograph architecture with anything but a perspective control lens and your lines will angle and distort the integrity of the image. (My Dad is a professional architectural photographer). The composition of the images are simple and crisp. Many of the images will provide inspiration for some future art I will make.
