Richard Pare – Tadao Ando: The Colours of Light explores the relationship between the work of Japanese architect Tadao Ando, one of the major protagonists of a new sense of poetry in the architecture of our time, and the work of British photographer Richard Pare, pioneer in the study of the place of photography in the representation of architecture. Rather than to illustrate a number of notable buildings, the focus of the exhibition is to reflect the shared vision that gradually developed between architect and photographer.
The forty-one photographs selected span the full range of Tadao Ando’s work, from the smallest project (such as the Oyodo Tea House) to the largest (such as the Chikatsu-Asuka Historical Museum). The photographs by Pare were taken between 1985 and 1996. They are chromogenic colour prints selected from the CCA collection and Pare’s own collection.
