9780714839998: Tadao Ando : The Colours of Light (Mini Edition)

The result of ten years of collaboration between English photographer Richard Pare and the internationally renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando, this book provides a photographic view of Ando's work. Pare has built up a portfolio of 200 images in which he has tried to distil the essence of each building. The book approaches Ando's work from a different angle, exploring the atmosphere, light and shade of his spaces.

Review:

The Colours of Light is a beautiful, dense little book that showcases English photographer Richard Pare's stunning takes on the respected, influential Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Pare photographed Ando's work over a 10-year period, and with a remarkable consistency has realized the intricacies of Ando's constructed confrontations between architecture and nature. Pare translates this dialogue with great skill in his photographs and easily manages to convey (convert?) the conversations about space, the absence/presence dialectic, that all buildings declaim. In his overview essay at the end of the book, Pare writes: "Space itself is immovable. It has no movement, though all movement is in space. All space is actually static, and potentially dynamic. We conceive space statically, but we experience it dynamically. The space that is rendered in a photograph is a static space of potential movement." His photographs bear out, but overcome, this tension. Tom Heneghan's introduction wonders if Pare's career as a "photographer of architecture rather than an architectural photographer" has enabled him to so keenly grasp the nature of Ando's work. Whatever the reason, this is a remarkable collection. --Mark Thwaite, Amazon.co.uk
