Despite the controversy around Richard Meier this year, his Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art was a photographic stop I had to make. Located in the Gothic District, his modern design instantly stands out and is instantly recognizable. For those of you familiar with the Getty Center in Los Angeles it has a very similar feel.
The curves and lines make for great abstract and minimalistic photography and make for nice contrasts when in the same frame. This was definitely a favorite stop of mine. Starting outside…
Heading inside, the light filtering in made for some nice shadowplay on the ceiling.
Looking up at a hallway from the ground floor and with a slight tilt of the camera, even more geometry is created.
One of my favorite areas to photograph was this curvy staircase. It wasn’t the easiest place to get great compositions but I really liked this one.
The great light and vivid blue skies against his signature white building materials played well off of each other. The last shot here is one of my favorites 🙂
