HGESCH - POLAROIDS

Written by Rolf Sachsse
For the first half of his 30-year career, architectural photographer HG Esch initially worked with Polaroid materials as a proof. Using a positive image from a cassette with nearly the same dimensions as the film in large-format photography, aspects such as lighting, grey values, and gradation scales can be tested. He collected these proofs as studies in their own respect, and the results have not always matched the final image. This book presents these Polaroid images, which cover a range of subjects and places that spans the history of architecture, from churches in Cologne to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, and from airports in Asia to the clay city of Shibam in Yemen.HG Esch is one of the most respected architectural photographers in the world, his clients send him over all five continents. In his works, he combines a well trained historical vision ? he started his vocation with preservation campaigns of medieval churchhouses and castles ? with a never ending curiosity in all forms of global housing and living.
