While in Pittsburgh, I visited one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous buildings, Falling Water. Nearby is another Wright design called Kentuck Knob and its current owner's sculpture garden.
Falling Water is considered to be one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous designs and is ranked as one of the Smithsonian’s Top 25 Places to Visit Before You Die. Built over the Bear Run Creek in the Allegheny Mountains outside of Pittsburgh, it features cantilever concrete terraces which stretch over the waterfall. It was built between 1936 and 1939 for the Kauffman family who owned a very successful department store in New York City. Although the radical design has undergone repairs in recent years it still stands as a beacon for organic architecture and a landmark in engineering.
Located near Falling Water is Kentuck Knob which was also designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is still privately owned but open for tours. The current owner is an English Lord who also has a sculpture garden on the ground which was open as well. The building shares some similar design features as Falling Water but is meant to be a simpler home but embodies the same beautiful organic architecture.
The sculptures stand out in greater contrast to the almost beautifully invisible home.
In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
It was a cold and cloudy winter day in 2012 when I came up with the idea of compiling photographs of people's faces. I decided that the most personal way to do it is through instant shots. They are one of a kind and you immediately have something in your hands.
