It’s the name of the sport, and the sport is the subject of a brand new documentary.
The documentary, Architecture Photography: How to Learn and Capture the Art of Architecture, premiered at the Berlin Film Festival this week.
It is the first in a series of archival documentaries, created by architects to capture the true art of architecture.
“Architecture Photography is the name given to the sport of architectural photography, which was invented in the early 1900s by British architect and photographer Richard Beard,” says Martin Riechmann, curator of exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
“Richard Beard was born in New York, and by the age of 22 he was already one of the leading architects of his generation.
“His subjects included the Eiffel Tower, the Royal Palace, the Empire State Building and the Pantheon, which is where he would first photograph the Eifel Tower.” “
Beard is credited with having created the first archival photographs of buildings in the 1930s and was instrumental in the creation of the National Gallery of Art in New London. “

“After Beard died in 1970, his son Richard began to build a photography studio in Paris and in 1974, he bought the archives of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Richard Beard was a trustee,” says Riechermann.
“This museum is where Richard’s work is housed.
Architecture Photography is one of two new archival projects by the film-makers of Architecture Photography series, the other is Architectural Photography: The Art of Photography. “
The archival documentary, with its unique combination of archivist and historian, is a true reflection of the man who inspired us as architects, and who made architecture photography what it is today.”

“We’re not just interested in the history of architecture photography, we’re also interested in understanding how photographers and archivists work together in the future,” says John Martin, co-founder and editor of Architectural Photographic, the official website for the series.
“There’s a big push by designers to make architecture photography as mainstream as possible, so the series is about building on the ground-breaking work of architects and archi-tourists, from Beard to Peter Beard.”
“The aim of this project is to create a history of the relationship between architecture photographers and architects,” adds Riechenmann.
The first film of the series, Architectural Architecture: A Story of the Modernist Movement, premiered in Berlin in January 2019.
It features interviews with the architects who created the structures of modernist architecture and examines the role of the architecture and architectural profession in the evolution of modern art.
The second documentary, Architecture Photography: A History of Modernism, is currently filming in London.
The new series also brings together architects who have collaborated on work for the Museum, the Louvre and the Tate.
The project was created to highlight the history and legacy of the first architectural photography exhibitions in the US, the Netherlands and Italy, as well as the rise and fall of American architectural photography.
“It is not just about a few photographers.
These are people who work with other people in order to tell stories,” says Jens Hölzel, curator and co-chair of the exhibition at the Met.
We all want to make our buildings look the way they should, to be the best we can, but this is not possible without collaboration. “
As an architect, it’s important to have these kinds of conversations about the relationship we have with each others.
How are we going to keep our work together? “
At the end of the day, it comes down to these people: what are we doing together?
How are we going to keep our work together?
That’s where Architecture Photography shines.”
