James Casebere: Fugitive

Mosque (After Sinan), 2006
"The photographic works of James Casebere (born in 1953, Lansing, Michigan, United States) explore architectural subjects such as domestic settings, flooded corridors of grand mansions, bare spaces of prison interiors, Moorish and Islamic architecture, ancient water tunnels in Bologna, or the Jewish Ghetto in Venice.
