The aim of Construction was to capture and document the formal beauty (and perhaps the ugliness) of newly created spaces and areas as they take shape and become a recognizable reality. It is not necessarily to photograph what could be claimed as major milestones in the construction cycle. Rather, it is the moments that engaged each photographer’s eye and aesthetic sensibilities. In this way the individual images have become more than an historical record, but rather an artistic interpretation of how the final building site and the completed art gallery came into being.
Construction therefore told the story of the building through three sets of image makers in a more direct fashion than words could describe.
