Building Photos

These three building photos, in the March 15, 2009 NY Times Magazine, are inspiring to me, since a lot of my work is interpretations of the grids from buildings. All three photos are by In Sook Kim for The New York Times.

Quoting the caption for the top photo: "One Ten Third, a Condominium Building Designed By Greenbergfarrow and built by Toll Brothers City Living. The photographer In Sook Kim Set Up Lights in a dozen apartments and placed the residents in their windows. In postproduction, she rearranged the windows to form the shape of a key."

"25 Cooper Square: The Cooper Square Hotel Completed: 2009 Architect: Carlos Zapata Developer: Sciame Photo date: Sunday, Jan. 18, 2009"

"48 Bond Street: Condominium residence Completed: 2008 Architect: Deborah Berke & Partners Architects Developer: Dacbon L.L.C. Photo date: Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2009"

When doing a search for In Sook Kim, I found an other great photo here.

I can always count on the NY Times to have good building photos periodically. Check out these photos from the NY Times Magazine back in May 2007. I used the top photo as inspiration when creating Orange Construction Fence Series #57 and Orange Construction Fence Series #58, which are presently hanging at the Snyderman-Works Gallery in Philadelphia. (Yeah!)

Time will tell if the photos above will used toward new work. I'll report back.
