Dutch artist and photographer Bas Princen portrays architecture and urban landscapes blurring the boundaries between photography and architecture. Thus the large-scale close-ups in the exhibition “Image and Architecture” represent architecture while themselves becoming architectural objects. The motifs vary from Renaissance tapestries and nineteenth-century steel constructions to buildings by Le Corbusier. A special technique of printing and framing lends these pictures a spatial and material presence that extends far beyond the traditional understanding of photographic images.
