Juan Rodriguez: Aires Mateus. Light
Edition of 1000 numbered and signed copies
C2c Editorial, 2019
Architectural photographer Juan Rodríguez brings his keen eye and perceptive sense of form, mass, and light to this extensive and beautifully shot series of photographs featuring the architecture of Manuel Aires Mateus. In documenting work by this famed Portuguese architect, which has a strongly sculptural nature, Rodríguez has opted for the stark contrasts and dramatic lighting effects of black-and-white film. The buildings with their geometric shapes are usually white, possessing characteristic clean lines and bold volumes that stand out dramatically in their respective contexts, whether a natural landscape or urban setting.
