Picturing architecture

ART

November 13, 1997|By John Dorsey

James DuSel's biography states that he was educated as a classicist and taught himself photography beginning at age 14, more than three decades ago. His subject is architecture, and a group of his works, titled "Scenes from a Built Environment," is on view at Resurgam. If the photo here, of the Basilica of the Assumption, is a typical example, DuSel doesn't go for the usual facade shot. Here he captures part of the building, including the famous dome, from such an angle that one notices details that might have been overlooked before. And the ladder in the picture only serves to call attention to its other geometries.

At Resurgam Gallery, 910 S. Charles St., through Nov. 30. Noon to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays. For information, call 410-962-0513.
