Cityscape and Architecture, SF and Berkeley
Spring 2002
Saw two amazing photography shows this Spring:
Migrations: Photographs by Sebastiao Salgado, at Berkeley Art Museum
Edward Weston: The Last Years in Carmel, at SF MOMA
Photographers are like thieves, they steal what touched their souls.
And here are some attempts at collecting my own booties...
Berkeley Art Museum was built in the 60's (opened in 1970). Its modern design and rough concrete interior is very Berkeley. I was intrigued by its layered terraces. Salgado's exhibit extended to all five levels of its gallery rooms. I didn't notice the climbing till I was at the very top, the end of the exhibition. Looking down, the museum looks like a maze. Unknowing viewers became exhibits themselves. Neat.

I rarely go IN Sony Metreon's shopping maze, but the glassy and concrete exterior are interesting.

The famous "zebra lines" of SF MOMA... ...and some interesting curves, too.
