The Poetics of Space


The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard’s philosophical meditation on architecture, concerns itself with memories, day-dreams, poetry, imagination; all tied to the spaces that we inhabit and experience, particularly the home. A photographer’s eye is attuned to these perceptions; it also regards the play of light, the juxtaposition of shapes, the interplay of lines and the presence of objects. And its gaze looks beyond the home to all spaces we inhabit and experience, inside and out.
