Double Take - Unusual Views
Photographs do not always have to be straightforward. They can be used to show new ways of looking at subjects. Here, photographers have used unusual angles and lenses to create new images.
Photography is not always an appropriate medium for book covers, but for some subjects like homes and decoration it works very well. In Post-War Britain, housing was an important issue and books on interior design and houses became increasingly popular. These books demonstrate how photography helped fuel aspirations by presenting readers with real homes rather than architect’s drawings and models.
