getty villa: an album

high art

July 2, 2012

i spent a perfect afternoon with my cousin this past saturday finally taking in the Herb Ritz exhibit at The Getty. Ritz’s delicious studies of the human form were made even tastier by the context of 90’s era fashion photography framing them (masculine lines, rock-hard bodies and pouty lips prevail). they were also an awe-inducing testament to the unparalleled richness of film photography and dark room wizardry.

it had been years since i’d been to The Getty, and i was eager to engage again with Richard Meier’s (controversial) masterpiece. we wandered at length, the experience proving just as rewarding as Ritz’s photographs. i was particularly taken with the shadows that emerge where the sun and Meier’s architecture meet, and with the interplay between the museum’s austere modernism and Robert Irwin’s fantastical sunken garden.

easing into it

somehow the fact that this work week is only half as long as the one that came before it isn’t making monday any more palatable.

these shots of Stephen Powers’ A Love Letter For You street art project, however, are adding a little perk to my otherwise soggy disposition:

my turn to gush

June 5, 2011

me and the man finally made it to MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibit last night, and I have to say: totally lived up to the hype. while there was no shortage of eye candy competing for the place of “Most Rad,” my personal all out love fest was with the tiny bean bag-clad theater looping shorts from Spike Jonze’s Yeah Right (unfortunately, not pictured). a special shout-out goes to mr. Jonze and the cast of “The Pink Board” for totally blowing my mind.
