These photos were shot at the Fondation Louis Vuitton last month. Fondation Louis Vuitton is an art museum located just outside the city centre of Paris (take the EUR 1 shuttle bus from l’Arc de Triomphe and you’re there within fifteen minutes). The museum’s cutting edge form was designed by Frank Gehry. The building takes the form of a sailboat’s sails inflated by the wind, covering the museum’s multilevel roof terraces. The museum’s collection included works by Basquiat, Koons, Warhol and Abramovic, but I found myself wandering the halls of the glass sails more – the museum itself is a work of art.
Looking at my photography portfolio and the photos I’ve shot for the blog over the years, I realize I don’t shoot architecture that often. It’s the challenge of shooting from certain angles and looking for the right lines that have always kept me away from trying. But with Gehry’s architecture, all you have to do is shoot. Nearly every corner I turned was worthy of a shot. And I would post all of them but somewhere I don’t think you’d be too keen on scrolling endlessly down to the bottom of the page.
I wouldn’t be anyway, but don’t mind me posting more on my social media channels.
