John Gollings: The History of the Built World

An MGA travelling exhibition

John Gollings: The History of the Built World is the first major survey of Gollings’s photographic practice, offering a much anticipated opportunity to appreciate the full breadth of his distinctive career and unique artistic vision.

Constantly innovating with photographic technologies, and investigating new subjects with a restless enthusiasm, Gollings has developed a distinctive visual style. Rather than documenting buildings in a way that reproduces the impersonal elevation plans of an architectural diagram, this style typically conveys a personal or physical connection with the structure being photographed, embedding the viewer in dramatic face-to-face encounters with built environments. Using a range of compositional techniques and visual effects to invest architecture with personality, he portrays buildings as lively habitats rather than static monuments.

This exhibition offers a much anticipated opportunity to appreciate the full breadth of his distinctive career and unique artistic vision.
