PROSPECT For more than a quarter century, artist Thomas Schiff has used a panoramic camera to explore the hard edged and technologically refined man-made landscape worldwide. Schiff recasts the built environment, reorders its purist forms into atmospheric com-positions befitting the illusionism of Piranesi. From the vernacular movie theatres of the 19305 to libraries, private residences, universities, and performance halls, PROSPECT features Schiff's quintessentially American work--kaleidoscopic and vibrantly colored large format prints that offer up a new way of seeing and interpreting the architectural landscape. Counted among the more than 200 photographs in PROSPECT are buildings by the titans of architecture: Nor-man Foster, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, Zaha Hadid and Renzo Piano. From visionary works by Thomas Jefferson to spectacular hotel resort developments, museums and the public spaces that define the fantasy skyline of Las Vegas, Schiff has logged hundreds of thousands of miles across the United States in rediscovering this rich repository of buildings. In PROSPECT, Schiff's steady and unrestrained visual language forcefully combines in a remarkable corpus that will broadly appeal to architects, designers, photographers, filmmakers and those interested in the visual arts. De-signed by Los Angeles-based Waxel, the book also features a compel-ling new essay by noted writer, Michael Speaks.
