As the kids wrap up their spring break today, I see that the newAnnenberg Space for Photography kicks off its first exhibition tonight. Been watching for this one for some time. Featuring 11 L.A. photographers, most familiar (and world-class) names, in an exploration of and tribute to life in Los Angeles. Now, how can I pull off a trip to my old hometown, the City of Angels? Here is a partial description of the physical space, taken from its Website:
Influenced by the inner workings of a camera.
The interior design is influenced by the mechanics of a camera and its lens. The central, circular digital gallery is contained within the square building to create an architectural metaphor for a convex lens. Even the ceiling features a striking, iris-like design that is reminiscent of the aperture of a lens.
