Aires Mateus by Juan Rodríguez
Architectural photographer Juan Rodríguez brings his keen eye and perceptive sense of form, mass, and light to this extensive and beautifully shot series of photographs featuring the architecture of Manuel Aires Mateus. In documenting work by this famed Portuguese architect, which has a strongly sculptural nature, Rodríguez has opted for the stark contrasts and dramatic lighting effects of black-and-white film. The buildings with their geometric shapes are usually white, possessing characteristic clean lines and bold volumes that stand out dramatically in their respective contexts, whether a natural landscape or urban setting. This is a new paperback edition of the book published in 2019.
