Hardcover monograph by Alastair Philip Wiper, 144 pages, published by the Danish Architectural Press.
British photographer Alastair Philip Wiper's latest book, "Building Stories" unveils the hidden narratives within the world of architecture. From nuclear test sites to the childhood home of Steve Jobs and the toilet of a deceased Albanian dictator, Wiper's hyper-realistic, cinematic imagery transports readers into a world where buildings take on distinct personalities, each with its own captivating story.
Over thirteen years, Wiper's lens captured the uncanny beauty of both overlooked structures and renowned architectural icons worldwide. From generic supermarket car parks in Denmark to top-secret government laboratories in the USA, and from the works of Marcel Breuer in France to the towering skyscrapers of Hong Kong, his photographs, created through long exposures of several minutes, exude vivid colours, evocative atmospheres, and a touch of dark humour.
