Harry Moore at the Irish Architectural Archive, Dublin 2

Until 31 January 2016
Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm

The convention of high multi-story chambers offers architects opportunities to play with structure, incorporating light and shape without the burden of functional occupation. Using the softer realisation of pinhole photography, Harry Moore’s images appreciate the atmosphere of the spaces, in opposition to the convention of sharp detail that usually features in architectural photography.
