There But Not by Jose Davila Highlights Context of Landmarks

There are some manmade structures that have become so indicative of an area that a person could easily identify it when push comes to shove as with There But Not by Jose Davila, an artist hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico. The photo series revolves around tweaked images of such landmarks as the Burj al Arab, St. Basil’s Cathedral and the Ananda Temple. Yet they have each been reduced to white negative space.

There But Not by Jose Davila essentially reflects "the importance of context in architecture," as stated by the artist. Davila explains, "What’s around a building is part of the building itself and vice versa." What is interesting, however, is the unique silhouettes each cutout takes. Using a bit of imagination, they can become just about anything.
