Date: 21 February 2013 at 7 p.m.

Place: Ivorypress Space C/ Comandante Zorita 48 (Madrid)

The book launch will be carried out by photographer Ingrid von Kruse; author of the foreword and executive director of the Pritzker Prize Martha Thorne, and architect Rafael Moneo. 

On 21 January at 7 p.m. Ivorypress will host the launch of the book Eminent Architects. Seen by Ingrid von Kruse. A title that compiles over thirty portraits of the most renowned architects of the last two centuries taken by this German photographer. Aside from the artist, the event will also be attended by Martha Thorne, executive director of the Pritzker Architecture Prize and associate dean at the IE University School of Architecture, author of the foreword; and architect Rafael Moneo, 1996 Pritzker Prize-winner and winner of the Príncipe de Asturias award for the Arts in 2012, who is one of the figures portrayed by Von Kruse. 

With a meticulous, demanding and intuitive observation, Ingrid von Kruse has photographed the people responsible for the most outstanding projects in the world. Norman Foster, Oscar Niemeyer, Richard Meier or Zaha Hadid are some of the professionals that have stood before Von Kruse’s personal lens. 

The photographer always works with her analogical Hasselblad camera, and only uses natural lighting. The good climate of each of the photographic sessions in personal settings, workspaces, or the architects’ recent constructions are reflected in each portrait. The result is a deep and intimate insight into each of the characters portrayed and their work. 

The portraits in the book are complemented by statements and reflections by some of the architects in it. A selection of sketches, drawings and mockups completes the particular vision of this German artist. A selection of these portraits will be exhibited at Ivorypress on the day of the presentation. 

Among the architects captured by Von Kruse’s lens are Tadao Ando, Gottfried Böhm, Mario Botta, Santiago Calatrava, David Chipperfield, Peter Eisenman, Frank O. Gehry, Meinhard von Gerkan, Hans Hollein, Bjarke Ingels, Helmut Jahn, Rem Koolhaas, Phyllis Lambert, Daniel Libeskind, Volkwin Marg, Rafael Moneo, Ryue Nishizawa, Ieoh Ming Pei, Dominique Perrault, Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, Kazuyo Sejima, Álvaro Siza, Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, Albert Speer, Oswald Mathias Ungers and Peter Zumthor. 

Ingrid von Kruse was born in Hamburg and studied photography at the Polytechnic University in Essen (1978-1981). During the following years she began to focus more and more on portraiture. Her books have been the subject of several international exhibitions, such as Europe Taken Literally, Time and Moments and Venice — Voices between the Stone and the Sea. Her work has become an important part of various public and private collections.

Fecha: 21 de febrero de 2013 a las 19:00 h.

Lugar: Ivorypress Space C/ Comandante Zorita 48 (Madrid)

La presentación correrá a cargo de la fotógrafa Ingrid von Kruse, la autora del prólogo Martha Thorne, directora ejecutiva de los Premios Pritzker y el arquitecto Rafael Moneo. 

El próximo 21 de enero a las 19:00 h, Ivorypress acogerá la presentación del libro Eminent Architects. Seen by Ingrid von Kruse. Un título que recopila más de una treintena de retratos de los arquitectos más destacados de los dos últimos siglos realizados por esta fotógrafa alemana. Además de la artista, el acto también contará con la presencia de Martha Thorne, directora ejecutiva de los Premios Pritzker y decana asociada de la escuela de Arquitectura de IE University, autora del prólogo; y del arquitecto Rafael Moneo, Premio Pritzker 1996 y una de las figuras retratadas por la fotógrafa alemana. 

Con una observación meticulosa, exigente e intuitiva, Ingrid von Kruse ha retratado a las personas que están detrás de los proyectos de arquitectura más sobresalientes del mundo. Norman Foster, Oscar Niemeyer, Richard Meier o Zaha Hadid son algunos de los profesionales que han pasado ante el personal objetivo de von Kruse. 

La fotógrafa trabaja siempre con su cámara analógica Hasselblad y solo usa luz natural. El buen clima de cada una de las sesiones fotográficas en el entorno personal, espacios de trabajo o construcciones recientes de los arquitectos se refleja en cada retrato. El resultado es una mirada íntima que se adentra en cada uno de los personajes y sus trabajos. 

Los retratos del libro se complementan con declaraciones y reflexiones de algunos de los arquitectos. Una selección de bocetos, dibujos y maquetas completa esta particular visión de la artista germana. Una muestra de estos retratos se exhibirá en Ivorypress el día de la presentación. 

Entre los arquitectos vistos por el objetivo de Von Kruse se encuentran, además, Tadao Ando, Gottfried Böhm, Mario Botta, Santiago Calatrava, David Chipperfield, Peter Eisenman, Frank O. Gehry, Meinhard von Gerkan, Hans Hollein, Bjarke Ingels, Helmut Jahn, Rem Koolhaas, Phyllis Lambert, Daniel Libeskind, Volkwin Marg, Rafael Moneo, Ryue Nishizawa, Ieoh Ming Pei, Dominique Perrault, Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, Kazuyo Sejima, Àlvaro Siza, Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, Albert Speer, Oswald Mathias Ungers y Peter Zumthor. 

Ingrid von Kruse nació en Hamburgo y estudió fotografía en la Universidad Politécnica de Essen (1978- 1981). Durante los años siguientes, comenzó a centrarse, cada vez más, en la fotografía de retrato. Se han celebrado varias exposiciones internacionales en relación con sus libros, como Europe Taken Literally,Time and Moments y Venice – Voices between the Stone and the Sea. Su trabajo se ha convertido en una parte importante de varias colecciones públicas y privadas.
