|Cityscape and Architecture, SF and Berkeley
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.|
|Sympnony Hall and War Memorial Hearst Theatre, across street from City Hall.|
|Finally, some street scenes of San Francisco...|
