Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Eric de Maré, 1910 - 2002, was one of Britain's most influential architectural photographers.
Enjoy an exhibition, drawing on material from the RIBA's
collections, that explores his work and highlights how he broadened the perception of where architecture was to be found.
A prolific contributor to the Architectural Review, de Maré illustrated pioneering studies of Britain's neglected industrial heritage. His book, The Functional Tradition in Early Industrial Buildings, potently suggested
how warehouses and mill buildings could serve as an
inspiration to architects rebuilding post-war Britain.
