Gerco de Ruijter made a series of photographs of tree farms in the Netherlands. He admits to attaching a camera to the end of a fishing pole for some of them.

peripheral perception

“Unconscious peripheral perception transforms retinal gestalt into spatial and bodily experiences. Peripheral vision integrates us with space, while focused vision pushes us out of the space, making us mere spectators.”

-Juhani Pallasmaa in The Eyes of the Skin, pp. 13

How does architectural photography remove our peripheral perception? How can it restore it in order to integrate the viewer in the space?

peripheral vision

“Photographed architectural images are centralised images of focused gestalt; yet the quality of an architectural reality seems to depend fundamentally on the nature of peripheral vision, which enfolds the subject in the space. A forest context, and richly moulded architectural space, provide ample stimuli for peripheral vision, and these settings centre us in the very space. The preconscious perceptual realm, which is experienced outside the sphere of focused vision, seems to be just as important existentially as the focused image. In fact, there is medical evidence that peripheral vision has a higher priority in our perceptual and mental system.” (5)

I find the work of Kenn Kotara to be very inspiring.

I am also thinking a lot about Kengo Kuma’s Orbe Tea house.
