As traces left behind by the last two hundred years of profound historical change, architecture and photography contribute to our contemporary skyline and to our image of the past. Their common history provides an indispensable background to every discussion of what has been called the ‘contemporary past’ - that is, to modernity considered as an open problem rather than a closed historical period. Architecture can be seen as a kind of macromodernity, a social scope where the diverse discourses of modernity have assumed their most large-scale form. In analogy, photographic media constitute a micromodernity, where the fine-grain  of modern society has been registered, identified, classified, and archived. In both cases, we can trace the irregular borderline between the discursive and its opposite, the material.
