Architect Jose Davila’s new book There But Not reduces 100 iconic landmarks to their negative space. Since 2008 this Mexican architect has had a passion for photographing famous buildings, but he goes one step further with his art and cuts out the landmarks to leave ‘ghostly white silhouettes’ behind.

‘What’s around a building is part of the building itself and vice versa’, says Davila. From the Burj al Arab in Dubai and St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, to the Ananda Temple in Myanmar and the Chrysler Building in NYC, it’s amazing how these architectural icons provide a unique appreciation for the architectural form.
