Constructing Worlds brings together eighteen exceptional photographers from the 1930s to the present day who have changed the way we view architecture and perceive the world around us.
From the first skyscrapers in New York and decaying colonial structures in the Congo, to the glamorous suburban homes of post-war California, and the modern towers of Venezuela, we invite you on a global journey through 20th and 21st century architecture.
Featuring over 250 works, this exhibition highlights the power of photography to reveal hidden truths in our society.
'A History of Photography' is now on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum in their photographs room (100). This re-hang of the permanent display shows works by key figures of photographic history and includes an insight into some of the V&A's first staff photographers, such as Charles Thurston Thompson and Isabel Agnes Cowper. It also includes the above piece by Lucas Foglia, 'Valerie and the Shadow, Tennessee' 2008.
