John Gollings: The History of the Built World
The work of architectural photographer John Gollings spans decades of transition within the Australian built environment. Not just notable for their historic value—mapping trends in the built world in places such as Sydney, Jordan and China—these photographs stand out from the chorus of purely documentative architectural photography by virtue of compositional techniques and visual effects that invest these buildings with a sense of intimacy and personality.
