WASHINGTON DC: LOBBY PROJECT
In 2015 I was commissioned by the Washington Project for the Arts to participate in their ongoing LOBBY PROJECT to bring art to various corporate sites across the city. For my installation, I wanted to photograph the emerging commercial district in the Northeast part of the city, called NoMa (North of Massachusetts Ave) and apply my Cinema Edit style to the vistas. I was given access to all the rooftops of the buildings in the area and photographed the city from this vantage point (as well as street level) on my medium format film cameras.
I shot over 30 rolls of 120 transparency film from which I created approximately 17 film compositions for the WPA, and ultimately printed and acrylic mounted eight of the pieces. There were two series that came from these compositions, the series below titled “CITY PORTRAITS” and the “MASSING” series. The installation was on view in NoMa from September to December 2015.
