Am3 skyspace shoot - part 4

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 17 September 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Everything shines in James Turrell's "Within without". It is one of several of his Skyspace artworks around the world.

The pyramid structure and viewing chamber are set amid the gardens at the National Gallery.

This photo shoot was fun. Pete – it was great to meet you on your trip to my home town!

Check out Peter’s shot for today. His low angle - compared to my shot - shows just how many ways there are to see and use the light within this space.

I have one more Skyspace series ready to run; and this time I was in the 'twilight zone' - as you can see from this earlier post.
