Musculature

In a rush to catch a bus, I stopped to take pictures of some stone benches and art that I’ve walked passed for years. Clicking away, falling into the bending light, a man yelled and told me that he had helped the artist who made them. Unfortunately, in my hurry, I did ask his name, but in a quick search I found out the work was done by the sculptor John Hoge.

While pushing and pulling the tones, I felt the images taking the shape of human muscle; the glow and reflections that came through are the energy and strength our muscles give us. Coincidentally, these stones sit in front of a hospital.

 

Rodin Creations in Black & White

I revisited and edited some photos I took at the Rodin Museum in Paris. The museum is a converted mansion that became the house for his work. It is a lovely, intimate space. Seeing the natural light fall on the sculptures in a house-like setting was pure joy.  This is just a small selection from the photos I took. For more photos, visit my Flickr album.
