Visions and Views combines contemporary photography and engravings from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to establish a dialogue between two different approaches to representing Francesco Borromini’s built work. The photographs, part of a larger commission acquired by the CCA, were taken in Rome by Toronto photographer Edward Burtynsky in 1999. They are presented alongside engravings of the same buildings, including posthumously published plates derived from Borromini himself.
