Black & White Architecture
Rating:4.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 5
Author:Terry Hope

Terry always seems to take a fresh slant on a subject and here, where you may expect to see the usual collection of skyscrapers, modern metallic industrial units and stately homes, you see instead close ups of rotting wooden structures, beautifully toned and contrasty walls, sepia images, infrared castles (from our favourite Simon Marsden) and grainy images. The book is full of atmosphere and really will get the black & white photographers adrenalin rushing. Its split into chapters on Location, Composition, Interiors, Detail, Tone, texture & contrast, Technique, Printing & Processing and Finishing. Each with loads of useful tips, advice and inspiration. The book includes images by big names such as Edward Steichen, John Claridge and Ralph Gibson. The only thing that disappointed me was wanting to know how John Claridge printed his pictures creating beautiful tones and diffused looks, but not finding the answers. A small point considering there is otherwise such a rich collection of ideas.
