Richard Ross “Architecture of Authority”

Richard Ross photographs "Architecture of Authority" – Boing Boing

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.
