Modern architecture cannot be altogether understood without the dissemination of its images. The blending between photography and architecture proved to be particularly fruitful in constructing the modern visual discourse. Architects became conscious of the full potential of photography beyond its documentary value, and photographers of architecture —architects themselves occasionally—, shortly became important composers and broadcasters of that narrative.
Simultaneously, the discourse around photography has become more and more complex, expanding its scope and surpassing a more traditional approach. XIXth century photographic documentation gradually gave in its way to new forms of exploration of reality, opening a wide range of possibilities and raising photographic and visual culture to a different level.
