An exhibition by Keith van Loen of a series of photographic images examining how modernist architecture is defined.

Rather than documenting in a rule-based image, photographer Keith van Loen has taken an abstract approach to the modernism that adorns our city and crops up in expected places.

In responding to the question, ‘what defines modernist architecture?’, it had to be conveyed without knowledge of the architect or build period. The building must speak for itself. Line, colour, texture and angle provide a language for these bold architectural statements.

Architectural photography is often defined in an image that keeps everything upright. Keith wanted to revert to the first rule of photography with this project – break the rules.
