The Architektur Galerie Berlin presents the second event in the Architecture + Photography series, an exhibition comparing the work of three famous architecture photographers: Iwan Baan, Jan Bitter, Hertha Hurnaus.
Iwan Baan works with prominent architects such as Herzog de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas and SANAA while also using his lens to capture phenomena of city life in the former Soviet Union or in the poorer parts of Caracas.
Jan Bitter has worked with Wiel Arets, Daniel Libeskind and Sauerbruch Hutton, among others. In the exhibition he presents pairs of images combining different projects and motifs.
Hertha Hurnaus works with a number of Austrian architects (AllesWirdGut, Delugan Meissl, Querkraft).
One feature shared by all three photographers is the fact that they do not represent architectural projects as separate, self-sufficient buildings, but show how they fit into their urban surroundings and the landscape around them. The photographs capture instants in their use and show us the life going on inside the buildings.
