Am3 skyspace shoot - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 14 September 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Last month, I met up with Peter to take a few shots at the National Gallery’s Skyspace.

Here, you see a visitor’s quiet moment in the central chamber of this unique piece of art.

You can also check out Pete's page for his photos from our shoot.

I'm not a lover of "Art", I generally - at best, don't get it, at worst I think it's self-indulgent twaddle. I'm not sure about this, I guess I would have to visit it to make up my own mind

Williams from East LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

Fabulous composition & light. A space age stage set for sure just waiting for the performance to begin or perhaps it already has as the seated figure reminds me of Beckett.

This is a wonderful image, just superb, it looks almost like modernism that
surrounds the ancient. Wonderful location for your amazing photos, along
with great composition to help with the mystification element.
