This publication focuses on the work of the German artist Dieter Appelt, who, in the 1970s, photographed Scotland’s spectacular Forth Bridge, a marvel of nineteenth-century engineering. Appelt was immediately drawn to the CCA’s extensive holdings of photographs and ephemera on the construction of the bridge, and took the opportunity to revisit and rephotograph the structure. Dieter Appelt: Forth Bridge–Cinema: Metric Space, a precisely composed cinematographic – photographic icon of the Forth Bridge, presents Appelt’s new work as well as a selection of the images that inspired him.
Foreword by Phyllis Lambert. Essays by Hubertus von Amelunxen, Dieter Appelt, and Louise Désy. Book design by Klaus Detjen.
