Building with Light: The Legacy of Robert Elwall

In conjunction with its retrospective of Edwin Smith, the RIBA is hosting a two-day symposium on architectural photography. The event centres around the legacy of Robert Ewall, a British historian of architectural photography and curator of the RIBA's photographs collection. He also wrote Building with Light, the international history of architectural photography that gives the symposium its title. Drawing on the 1.5 million architectural images in the Robert Elwall Photographs Collection, academics and photographers will discuss the relevance of photography as a "form of expression, as historical record and as spatial narrative".
