Richard Ross

Over the course of five years—and with seemingly limitless access—Richard Ross has been making thought-provoking pictures of architectural spaces that exert power over the individuals within them. From civic spaces to religious institutions, Ross points out how individuals are strategically manipulated through carefully planned design. Ross's photographs are aesthetically sophisticated, emotionally charged, and visually compelling. His approach to photography is to show you an idea and then ask you to think it through.
