  • In this monograph, the Argentinian-born architectural photographer Claudio Manzoni presents a selection of his works. The photographs, the majority of which were taken in Argentina, reflect Manzoni's fascination with light and its transforming effects on the subjects he depicts. As he moves through rooms, halls, buildings and sites, Manzoni delves profoundly and intuitively into the architecture he photographs, showing how it is transformed in its passage through the day. Another of Manzoni's interests is man's relationship with nature, and his photographs present his explorations into the intersection between the two, ranging from a wire fence marking a determined area of countryside to major cities; the culmination of man's quest to dominate nature once and for all. Manzoni's aim is to involve spectators in this juxtaposition of man and place, encouraging them to look beyond the fraction of a second shown in the photograph to uncover the story hidden beneath. The static elements in the images collected here are actually vivid representations of animated dramas filled with different characters, tales, motivations and histories which Manzoni hopes will stimulate his audience's imagination and appreciation. This book features over 200 original images and is produced as part of joint project between Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers and the Architectural Photography Foundation. It accompanies an exhibition of the photography featured which in 2012 toured through the Chinese cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzen.

  • Claudio Manzoni was born in Argentina on the 29th September 1959.
    Between 1965 and 1974 he attended school in Eldorado, Misiones, where he took his first steps in photography. In 1975 he moved to the City of Córdoba where he finished school and went to university, receiving his architectural degree from the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba in 1985. Between 1985 and 1990 he worked as an architect in the city of Ushuaia. This period also saw him develop a practice as a landscape photographer. After 1990 he moved to Barcelona, where he spent six years working as an illustrator and architectural photographer. He returned to Argentina in 1997, settling in Buenos Aires, where he still practices today as an architect and architecture photographer, working with some of the most important studios in the country. His photographs are regularly published in newspapers and specialized magazines and books. Over the past ten years, landscape photography has played an important role in his portfolio, helping him to explore the Argentine landscape, especially the northern Andes and the southern regions. His work has been exhibited in several different collective and individual shows.
