It is the seemingly peripheral details and gestures that anchor this collection of images. Like the building they document, these photographs of the Drawing Matter Archive at the Shatwell Farm in Somerset are reflections of the project’s backgrounds, contextual minutiae, and footnotes. Taking the form of a three-way conversation between Hugh Strange (the archive’s architect), photographer Max Creasy, and architect and academic Elizabeth Hatz, this book offers a subtly poetic and expansive examination of the building, the collection it houses, and its place in the surrounding farm, as well as a wider evaluation of the built form.
