With this series of images the artist challenges the icons of contemporary architecture by pushing his camera further and further out of focus. Perhaps surprisingly, in most images the strength of the building's form survived this process intact. In loosing virtually all surface detail the photographer radically re-thinks many fundamental conventions of architectural photography.
