Mass Production


Mass Production an anthology of 17 architectural and landscape images documented from 2011 – 2014 by award-winning architectural and landscape photographer Darren Soh. Featuring images of grandeur and sheer scale, the title Mass Production speaks not only to the size of the buildings that Darren shoots, but is also a reference to their purpose – to house the masses.

The 4-layer cover designed by &Larry symbolises what architect Shin Takamatsu (himself a designer of grand structures) describes as the function of buildings – to protect its inhabitants. The structural quality of the cover also echoes Darren’s personal aim of making these images to preserve and immortalise the memory of these buildings when they are no longer around.

“Photography has the ability to freeze a moment within a frame and it is this time-stopping ability of photography that will enable us to possess a fragment of our built structures long after they are physically gone.” – an excerpt from Darren Soh’s afterword.
