Photography: Master builders
In Timothy Soar's monochrome portrait, the face of the architect Sean Griffiths, co-principal of the cool FAT practice, carries a look of chippy disdain.
You can get up close and personal to other two-dimensionalised architects at the "The Changing Face of British Architecture" show in Bristol.
By extreme contrast, local photographer Frances Gard's juxtaposed images of people and street-life in Bristol are vividly humane.
"These images remind us of qualities so deliberately absent in Soar's images," says the show's curator, Rob Gregory. In other words: how much do architects really know, or care, about the places and people they create buildings for?"
'The Changing Face of British Architecture', Archi-tecture Centre, Bristol (www.architecturecentre.co.uk) to 16 December
