Stagecraft: Models and Photos is on display at Columbia GSAPP's Arthur Ross Gallery until March 10th. The show combines models made Kenneth Frampton's students over the years and photos by James Ewing of the same. The latter appear to layer photos of the models with computer post-production, but the exhibition booklet illustrates that the backgrounds and other effects are all in-camera. Impressive and worth seeing in person.
