A Visual Study of America’s Architectural Landscapes over 35 Years #CelebratePhotography

Houston Texas 1985 by William W Fuller

Via featureshoot

Rising from the depths of all great American cities, stand the monolithic skyscrapers and tower blocks that have become solid icons of the modern metropolis. For thirty-five years, Arizona-based photographer William W. Fuller has been using his lens as a way to navigate the urban jungle and to study the architectural landscapes of America. Having driven across the States dozens of times in his car, Fuller has visited many of America’s major cities, including: Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Miami, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Denver, Phoenix, Houston, and Atlanta.

In Fuller’s series The City, buildings that usually form part of the backdrop, emerge elegantly into the foreground. In his detail-orientated large format photographs, we notice the beauty and geometry of the architecture: the echo of windows like shattered piano keys, the perfectly vertical lines, the prism-like surfaces of tower blocks set against a moody sky, hard shapes juxtaposed with soft nimbus cloud. The sights are familiar, yet unfamiliar – totally absent and deserted of people, the buildings look as though they’re part of a model city. Because of this, the images have an undeniable timeless quality about them.

Now that almost four decades have passed since Fuller began taking these photographs, he has finally compiled his images into a book, containing a mesmerizing showcase of his fine art large format black-and-white work bound under the title, The City: A Formalist View of American Urban Architecture. In the opening of his book, curator Dr. Rebecca Senf writes of his work: “[Fuller’s] compositions emphasize formal qualities – light and shade, shape and negative space, line and pattern – by collapsing layers of buildings and sky into flat arrangements. This modernist approach to making pictures, one which privileges the visual qualities of the resulting photograph over the literal or symbolic meaning of the subject, is one Fuller has pursued consistently and with lifelong dedication.”

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
