Richard Ross: Architecture of Authority Hardback
For the past several years and with seemingly limitless access, Richard Ross has been making unsettling and thought-provoking pictures of architectural spaces that exert power over the individuals within them.
From a Montessori preschool to churches, mosques, and diverse civic spaces a Swedish courtroom, the Iraqi National Assembly hall, the United Nations, the images in "Architecture of Authority" build to ever harsher manifestations of authority: an interrogation room at Guantanamo, segregation cells at Abu Ghraib, and finally, a capital-punishment death chamber.
