This weekend I had the pleasure of working with Paul Warchol, architectural photographer, during a photo shoot for our new Education Center. If you’ve never had the opportunity to be on a photo shoot for architecture, I highly recommend it. It’s completely different than being on a portrait shoot, and the precision and delicacy of the placement of every object in the room was incredibly surprising.
While I’ve been actively preparing for the opening of the Center (along with the entire Education team at the Rubin), this was the first time that I was really able to look at our new space through an artistic lens. It didn’t hurt that I spent about 13 hours with the architect, Lee Skolnick, and a photographer who was studying space throughout the day.
I’ve been in and out of the Center every day, but playing with the composition of chairs and objects, as well as noticing every angle of every space has made me even more excited about our opening.
The results of the photo shoot will be on our main web page in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
