Shimomura exposes the essential design character of each house. His photographs of Gaudis twisting organic forms are suffused with the Spanish architects rich colours - golden bronzes, sea greens and steely blues. In a series of images shot from below eye level, Shimomura shows how the intricate iron grill work of Hortas house leads the eye up to an atrium-like stained glass skylight. The contrary nature of the Hill House is portrayed by contrasting its heavy dolmen-like front door, reminiscent of the prehistoric stone structures found throughout the area, with its large light-filled windows and interior rooms.
Concentrating on these and other contemporaneous residential masterpieces, Shimomura sensitively reveals the full range and variety of Art Nouveau design. From exteriors and interiors to elements of lighting and furniture, he takes careful note of door fixtures, carpet patterns, wallpaper and even lamp shades.
