In this publication internationally renowned architecture photographer Maxime Delvaux shows, for the first time, images taken independently from any commission. For this, he pursued a solitary trajectory, visiting buildings and sites which cover a wide historical span and resonate with his personal fascinations. These five photographic series, devoted to a particular building, site or architects are accompanied by different types of text written by authors of various backgrounds. Together they create a new narrative inviting the reader to create alliances between images and texts. Like Maxime Delvaux’s photographic approach, these texts and their articulation with the photographs are specific to each subject, illustrating five ways of showing and telling about places near and far.
