Architecture and photography have closely interacted with each other since the invention of the photography. Through the 20th century, architectural photographs were utilised for documentation, preservation, historiography, presentation and as a tool of design. Until the turn of the 21st century, the dissemination of architectural photographs was limited by the accessibility of printed media. Today, owing to the digital communication technologies, architectural photographs are being disseminated and circulating rapidly in an unprecedented way. Therefore, not only architectural photographs produced by professionals but also a high number of photographs which were taken by users or visitors of a building started to disseminate. Accordingly, not only the audience but also consumption and production processes of architecture have changed. This study focuses on photography’s affiliation as a tool of architectural (re)presentation and (re)production.
