Mexican artist Jose Davila’s book ‘There But Not‘ features photographs of over one hundred iconic buildings, without actually showing the famous structures themselves. He cut out images like the Chrysler Building and Chateau de Chambord, leaving their white silhouettes, to show the importance of context when discussing architecture.

Davila reformats the well-known architecture, resulting in a renewed appreciation for it. He cut out the images by hand, which helped him stay connected to the idea of physically manipulating space.

Long interested in the relationship between built space and physical place, Davila saw that by focusing on the silhouette of recognizable architectural icons in unrealistic proportion to their immediate environment, their grandeur was heightened beyond their inherent allure.
