"Light is a powerful substance. We have a primal connection to it. But, for something so powerful, situations for its felt presence are fragile. I form it as much as the material allows. I like to work with it so that you feel it physically, so you feel the presence of light inhabiting a space. I like the quality of feeling that is felt not only with the eyes."

A museum guard in the light tunnel between the Caroline Wiess Law Building and the Audrey Jones Beck Building of the MFAH (Museum of Fine Arts, Houston). The MFAH commissioned artist James Turrell's "The Light Inside" for the underground tunnel linking the two buildings. The Light Inside turns the walls of the tunnel into vessels for conducting light. The raised walkway guides visitors forward and gives them the sense of floating in space, while the changing cycle of illumination varies in color. More information is available on the MFAH website.
As always, your comments and faves are appreciated. Constructive criticism and suggestions are especially welcome as I believe they help to make me a better photographer. Thank you for taking the time to look at my photos.
'A light guides you into Pharos'. James Turrell, 2017.
Exhibition at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art), Hobart Tasmania, Australia.
If you are into modern art (maybe even if you aren't), I can't recommend this famous private museum enough. Practically put Hobart on the map. That and penal colonies back in the 1800's. Worth every penny of the admission price.
Blue Planet Sky - James Turrell

This mosaic is just a selection of the colour range that lit up a whole building : Louise Blouin Institute, Olaf Street, W11 (near Latimer Road tube), had a James Turrell exhibition. The huge building is a former coach works. The lighting was switched on until 1am. I haven't photoshopped any of these at all.
In the center of the picture, a curious visitor is checking the Master Piece of James Turrell from the other side of: The Light Inside.
Turrell has created some of the most beautiful art of our time, treating light as a material presence in perfectly calculated installations. Viewers are invited to investigate the margins of perception, to measure the passage of time, and—in the artist’s words—“to enter the light.”
