Facades : Roland Fischer - Photography Hardback
Edited by Petra Giloy-Hirtz
Roland Fischer's "Facades" are spectacular photographic pict ures: a visual grammar of architectural structures, an alphabet of abstract forms full of art - historical references.
Roland Fischer (b. 1958), whose work is exhibited worldwide in important museums, lives and works in Munich and Beijing. Since the 1990s t he artist has been photographing the exteriors of buildings, of banks, corporate headquarters and museums in the metropolises of the world, including Beijing, Tokyo, Shanghai, New York, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Osaka, Boston, Brasilia, Los Angeles, Paris, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Dallas, Madrid, Washington, Mexico City, Chicago, Toronto, Chongqing and Montreal.
The results of this breathtaking project form an unusual series of some 100 facades: a vocabulary of global architecture, an inventory of city landmarks. The structures and colours of the contemporary metropolitan universe are transformed into pictures that resemble abstract painting
