A Visual Inventory
Visual Inventory presents some of the images from Pawson?s personal collection of over 230,000 digital snapshots. The book opens with an essay explaining the importance of photography as a tool for Pawson?s work, and the images are set one per page with illuminating captions.
Covering a huge range of subjects, the photographs form a remarkable body of reference material. Some of the images illustrate a particular idea about form, material or space; others reflects the author?s interest in returning repeatedly to certain subjects, capturing the changes brought by different weather, light conditions, seasons and patterns of use.
Each image has been chosen for the book because it is useful, offering a lesson in visual thinking. None of the photographs in the book have been cropped or altered; it is the selection, arrangement and captioning of the images that make this book unique, valuable and attractive to any architect, designer, artist or student who wants to see the world around them with a stronger eye.
