From Library Journal:
"A volume whose photographs give aesthetic delight on almost every page and whose text is filled with information not readily available elsewhere, published in the large and sumptuous format it deserves."
—Brendan Gill, New Yorker
"Both exquisite and incisive, tracing not only the development of photography itself but the subtle ways in which photography has shaped our culture's attitudes toward buildings. Architecture Transformed is the rare largeformat book: the elegance of its design is matched by the significance of its text."
—Paul Goldberger, New York Times Book Review
"A large, gorgeous book, the kind to page through again and again."
This book traces the history of an important genre of photography: that of buildings since 1839. Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully written by two experts, it will become a standard work. Only Richard Pare's Photography and Architecture: 1839-1939 (MIT Pr., 1982) covers similar ground; it is luxuriously produced but carries less explanatory text. Robinson, a world-renowned photographer, and Herschman, an art historian, consider their subject from so many angles that their work will interest a wide range of professionals and amateurs. Peter Kaufman, Suffolk Community Coll. Libs., Selden, N.Y.
