Titled - Snowflake Ceiling
This was a rather small space designed for children. The ceiling was intended to delight and inspire all who entered the space.
I shot this image at night to ensure we had complete control of the lighting and show the subtleties of the design. This is a shot from 1998 created with my 4x5 view camera and transparency film. It is an available light image and is one of my personal favorites. Not only is it a technical achievement of which I am very proud because of the challenge to create due to the lighting and the precise geometry, it's also a beautiful representation of the architect's concept and a stunning visual image.
