The Royal Institute of British Architects has announced an international symposium on architectural photographyto coincide with the retrospective of the British architectural photographer Edwin Smith (1912-1971), whose extensive body of work has helped redefine the notion of post WW II British Architecture.
Winchester Cathedral, Hampshire, 1959 The Nave Vault by Edwin Smith (1912- )
The symposium will seek to honour the legacy of Robert Elwall (1953-2012), acclaimed historian of architectural photography and curator of the RIBA's Photographs Collection that now bears his name. The Robert Elwall Photographs Collection is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in the study of the influence of photography on architecture and the creative process.
The symposium will be held 13 -14 November 2014 in London.
Keep an eye out for more details and a call for paper, which will be posted on architecture.com in the spring.
