Hgesch - Polaroids
|Publisher||Lecturis / Saiid/smale|
For the first half of his 30-year career, architectural photographer HG Esch initially worked with Polaroid materials as a proof. Using a positive image from a cassette with nearly the same dimensions as the film in large-format photography, aspects such as lighting, grey values, and gradation scales can be tested. He collected these proofs as studies in their own respect, and the results have not always matched the final image. This book presents these Polaroid images, which cover a range of subjects and places that spans the history of architecture, from churches in Cologne to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, and from airports in Asia to the clay city of Shibam in Yemen.
