The Canadian photographer Robert Polidori is known for his large-scale urban, interior and landscape photographs, and is mostly known for the size of his images as his subjects often revolve around the architecture of prestigious museums.
His photographs of the Getty Center in 1997 show behind-the-scenes images before the opening of the multipurpose complex.
Polidori shoots with a large-format film view-camera and in color sheet negatives (5x10, 8x10 or 1x14) since 1982. He was first recognized when he photographed abandoned apartments in New York's Lower East Side. In 1983, he began to document the restoration of the Château de Versailles as a symbol of "society's superego". Polidori has often been described as a keen observer of the built, man-made world.
"Personally I am more attracted to photographs that attempt to be more objective and 'emblematic' of a subject’s qualities rather than a personal subjective interpretation of phenomena."
