ARCHETYPES

In his solo exhibition at the Patrick Mikhail Gallery in Montréal, David K. Ross presents large-format architectural models. Ross’ photographs are the result of four years of research and exclusive access to construction sites around the world. All pictures were taken in the dark using flash. David K. Ross also captured this mock-up on the construction site of our student residence in Basel. The Type-C print is on display in the exhibition, which lasts from 28.8. - 19.10.2019.
