This series of images was taken on visits to the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California over an eight year period.
I usually find this type of modern architecture sterile, but here the architect Richard Meier created spaces that are not only pleasant to be in but include interesting lines, windows, angles, curves, and textures in almost every view. Looking abstractly at these details reveals patterns that capture my eye as a photographer, and as many visual artists know, once you notice something like this, it’s hard to let go of it. I continue to visit the Getty and add to this collection.
Here’s the entire set so far: Getty Center Abstractions
I have a show of these images coming up next month. If you’re in the area stop by.
