Photographing public art


I admit that I’m a junky for public art, the interesting and often odd sculptures found in public spaces or in front of buildings in major cities. These sculptures always grab my attention and are the subject of my featured gallery for January.

As a photographer, I like to find viewing angles that illustrate how the sculptures interact with the cities that surround them. Some don’t fit in at all, at least from a photo composition viewpoint. But others integrate so perfectly that it’s difficult to imagine the location without the sculpture.
