An unexpected bonus was the photography exhibit at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles — photographer Diane Tuft’s giant abstract images of Antarctic glaciers. I captured part of the exhibit here, along with a child playing as his mother watched.
The accompanying description indicated that this was from a 2012 visit. Diane explicitly avoided those traditional images of penguins and icebergs. With no horizons or humans, there is no sense of scale. Which was the approach she took.
The abstract photography was lovely. I also loved the floating frame, which dressed the perimeter without visually weighing it down. I’m starting to explore printing and displaying larger-scale works at my house. I hope someday I can make art of this caliber. Though I’m not sure if I’ll be going down to Antarctica.
