Photography can be used as a mechanism of expression of space organization, perceptions and sensations. With the advent of the camera, architecture was able to documented with extreme precision.
This type of documentation was defined by the author André Rouillé. Rouillé defined documentary photography, in the context of the 19th century, as the record strictly truthful of the reality. It is a mechanism that archives, informs, organize, fragment and unifies. Symbolizes the passage of the imprecision of the manual action of men towards the exact record of reality by an instrument.
