“Gehry’s Children” is a series I completed while on location in Seattle for an architectural shoot. I have always been fascinated by the way Frank Gehry incorporates materiality into his buildings, something which he really pioneered as an architect. He is not only a master at playing with forms, but he also gives us manifold textures and colors…from titanium, polished steel, iridescent glass and molded plastic. This series of photos deconstructs his EMP Museum into component shapes and textures. It is a study in geometry and texture by a photographer who adores strong composition and bold lines.
My goal is to bring the viewer closer to the building and give them access to another way of seeing it. For me this is one of photography’s main roles, to present the subject in a new way that the viewer may not have perceived before. The viewer may or may not ever see this building in person, so it is photos that will form their perception of it. This building as a whole is rather odd…hard to characterize and not overly elegant. It is a Platypus of modern architecture. But broken down into pieces you really begin to see how amazing the construction is! [Official Website]
