Publisher's description: Why does a visual artist make a photographic "excursion" to the architectural works and sites of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in Chandigarh, India? Or to the architectural landmarks of Oscar Niemeyer in Niteroali and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil? Of all the "grand masters" of architecture, Le Corbusier and Niemeyer are the ones who have infused entire capitals with their ideas, bequeathing to these cities key landmarks and contributing to their identity. For Austrian artist and photographer Georg Salner (b. 1958) they were the ideal types of designers: innovative, influential and motivated by a commitment to the idea of world civilization. Georg Salner's Chandigarh, Brasilia: reVision is a document of the artist's journey to the architectural sites and expressions of Le Corbusier and Niemeyer in India and Brazil -- the spaces, places and buildings in 315 intriguing black-and-white images.
