I’m finally getting around to editing and sharing some images from my recent trip to the Phoenix, AZ area.
First, the reason for my trip was to attend the In Depth exhibition opening Rfotofolio curated at Art Intersection in Gilbert, AZ. What a labor of love the whole event was. I cannot put into words how great it was to meet Connie and Jerry Rosenthal, the masterminds behind Rfotofolio, and the other photographers exhibiting.
The exhibition and photographer’s forum were wonderful. Seeing the prints in person is just so much better than viewing them online. And with over 70 photographer’s exhibiting the variety of work was such fun to see.
Of course I can’t seem to manage getting myself in any photos, but here are my two images on the gallery wall.
This was my first time in the Phoenix area so I took the opportunity to photograph some of the area’s architecture. The first stop was the Burton Barr Central Library designed by DWL Architects and Will Bruder. Definitely one of the cooler libraries I’ve ever been in.
The 5th (top) floor, in particular, is the most interesting. Based on the orientation of the building the “portals” in the ceiling allow the sunlight to align perfectly on equinox days. This floor is also an open, 1-acre reading room.
Since I only had limited time to photograph and wanted to get to as many sites as I could, I didn’t spend as much time here as I would have liked to, but I’m still happy with a few shots.
The lone color image I’ll share in the post, there are a number of others in this set here if you’re interested.
