Richard Ross “Architecture of Authority”
BoingBoing has an interesting post out showcasing the work of photographer Richard Ross. Ross takes interesting photographers examining the architecture in places where authority and control exist.
“From a Montessori preschool to churches, mosques and diverse civic spaces including a Swedish courtroom, the Iraqi National Assembly hall and the United Nations, the images in Architecture of Authority build to ever harsher manifestations of power: an interrogation room at Guantanamo, segregation cells at Abu Ghraib, and finally, a capital punishment death chamber.”
Ross’ photographs are as powerful as they are interesting. Check them out here.
