Spiluttini's Photographs.

  • Comment
Margherita Spiluttini’s photographs reveal hidden depths, says Andrew Mead.

The Austrian photographer Margherita Spiluttini describes a journey in the Alps
when the driver simply wants to get from A to B and takes no notice of the bridges, tunnels and other infrastructure that make the journey possible. ‘But once you get out of the car there is time to really take in these built elements – and it turns out that it’s not that easy to realise what they’re all about. A highway ventilation system may look like a church or chapel,’ she says. One strand of her work deals with such interventions in the Alpine landscape but Spiluttini primarily photographs architecture. A substantial new book, Margherita Spiluttini: Spacious (£41), published by Vienna’s Architecture Centre to accompany her recent retrospective, has many images that make you pause.
