Roland Fischer’s Façades are spectacular photographic creations that together offer a visual vocabulary and anthology of international architecture from around the globe. Since the 1990s, Fischer has been taking photographs of the exteriors of prominent buildings—such as banks, corporate headquarters, and museums—in the major cities of the world, including Beijing, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Toronto, Boston, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. But his images are far from straightforward representations of the buildings: in Fischer’s hands, their facades are transformed into something different: pictures that resemble nothing so much as abstract paintings.
           
This book gathers one hundred of Fischer’s images, and the result is an unforgettable artistic inventory of the world’s metropolises, as captured and presented by a unique artistic sensibility.
