The City and The Architects
„Archscapes“ shows architectural spaces through the lens of architects-photographers. The exhibition presents a view from a different angle to what surrounds us, familiar places, people and events seen in an unknown manner. Life as it is – colorful, vibrant and multifaceted; refracted through the lenses of several young (and not so young) fanciers of photography. Four authors taking the same view – questing, analytical and critical.
